Ronald isn't the only one that likes this - count me in too! A well crafted and rendered composition that was captivating and enjoyable throughout. The orchestral outbursts contrast well with the more subdued writing for the soloist.
Thanks Graham. It was fun composing this. Good that you liked it. The piece has some strange harmonic developments, but put there on purpose. You know Rolifer's music is sometimes also very strange, but ever interesting and I wanted to do something alike to draw his attention.
Good work. I liked the percussion at the start and throughout, and the string writing is very effective, also the use of different orchestral textures and tutti/solo. The dissonant "outbursts" are fine listening... To me, the harmony is natural and that's always good! Nice ending.
