About

It is in the nature of a greeting prelude, with sounds of welcome from the orchestra: a summoning and gathering. There are hints of the Pacific in the music, in the melody, the simple rhythmic games and the percussion sounds, and the musical language is a celebration of things I find attractive about tonality. All of the music is built from a short melody which is viewed from several angles before a vigorous conclusion.


Commissioned note

Commissioned by the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra in 1990, and first performed in a subscription series as part of a series of fanfares commissioned from twelve Auckland composers.
