Djeran : concerto for solo viola and string orchestra

by Aaron Wyatt (2023)

Work Overview

Djeran is the Noongar season from April to May. Represented by the colour green, it is the time of year where the oppressive heat of the summer months finally gives way to cooler weather and dewy mornings. Where banksias start to flower, and the red gums and summer flame add their hue to the landscape. It is a time for renewed life and activity, and that took on a particularly personal note this year (and made the season an obvious choice) as my partner, Cathrin, and I welcomed our first child into the world. It is to him that this work is dedicated.

The work is in a single movement, but within that it has a condensed three movement structure.
