Programme Note

This work’s gravitas (characterising quality or attribute) refers to the phenomenon in music where the most prominent or audible elements at any moment in a piece differ from those most important to its construction. (The latter often behave as poles to which the former gravitate.)

Gravitas was composed during the 2010-11 Jack C. Richards/Creative NZ/New Zealand School of Music Composer Residency at the request of Hamish McKeich and the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra.
