The concerto is composed in the form of a three-part tone poem. Each movement is intended to evoke a different color and aspect of New Zealand scenery, and may stand on its own as a separate performance work.
The first movement, The Domain of Clouds, depicts the ever-shifting mottled whites and pastel greys that sometimes swan, sometimes rage past the composer’s window high on a hilltop overlooking Wellington Harbour. While such colors have inspired the delicacy or harshness of the orchestration, the wayward mood of the New Zealand skies has dictated the progression and development of thematic material.
