Moto Perpetuo was commissioned by the Wellington Youth Sinfonietta for their tenth anniversary concert in 2003. I was excited about the prospect of composing a work for a group of enthusiastic performers, willing to throw themselves head-first at a challenge.
Moto Perpetuo is inspired by this youthful approach to music making which manifests musically as a sort of exuberant relentless energy.
