Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"...The tone poem 'In the Dark' traces the turn of the year through declining autumn and winter stasis to the renewal of spring...For all its flamboyant handling of a large orchestra it's akin to 'Tapiola', and one can hardly aim higher. The 'Chaconne' presents an even darker version of pastoral, poised between ground-based polyphony and scudding, hallucinatory scherzi: a meditation on what landscape may hide...The performances...seem exemplary." ***** - MacDonald, BBC
