Notes & Reviews:

Call it what you will - Opposites Attract, Syllogistic, Oxymoronic - but, the 'Taliban Dances' by Robert Ian Winstin is first, and foremost, a true virtuoso violin concerto for violin & orchestra. It also delivers a message. In five movements, the 'Taliban Dances' calls for extraordinary technical prowess and ability. Secondly, the 'Taliban Dances' are extraordinary extra-musical comments on society, war and death. They are full of life, devastating in their sadness, surprisingly humorous and starkly serious. They are Eastern and they are Western. Loosely based upon several authentic Arabic scales and modal rhythmic structures, these pseudo-ethnic elements are gradually replaced by more traditional Western-style harmonies and rhythmic structures as the piece progresses from beginning to end.
