Ixion's Wheel was written during the composer's term as Mozart Fellow in 1993. The work is dedicated to Katherine Austin (piano) and Richard Foreman (clarinet), who gave the premiere performance in the Ilott Concert Chamber, Wellington, during the ExtravaCANZa festival of November 1994. Mythology tells that on account of his aggression and lust, Ixion was lashed to a blazing wheel by Zeus, and sent whirling through the air to eternity. This work is the composer's response to the sad fate of Ixion.
