For chamber orchestra.
First performed in 1991 by the English Chamber Orchestra, conducted by Mark Wigglesworth, this 25 minute work was commissioned by the English Chamber Orchestra with funds from the Arts Council of Great Britain.
". . . has an unselfconscious robustness of rhythm that sets up many associations - Nielsen via Simpson, Stravinsky via Tippett, Janacek, even John Adams."
