This concerto in three movements was commissioned by St Matthews Chamber Orchestra for performance by the orchestra in October 2016 with Helene Pohl as soloist.

The first movement opens with a rising augmented figure in the solo violin, which returns in ever changing forms throughout the movement. The second movement is fast, driven, and rhythmic, and the final movement a slow moving and somber dance for the soloist and strings with tacet woodwind and brass.
