About

Programme note

six pieces for orchestra grew out of another, more substantial piece for wind quartet, which in turn was inspired and heavily influenced by Ligeti’s Ten Pieces for Wind Quintet. In some senses this is an orchestration or arrangement of my own work (eight pieces for wind quartet), but the aural experiments set up in that original piece are pushed further here, at times to the point of extreme severity. Three cloud-like movements are broken up by virtuosic, acerbic little interludes, each miniature movement exploring different psycho-acoustic directions and instrumental effects.
