Tense and intriguing solo violin piece backed by string ensemble. Huge portamento leaps, trills and atonal leanings mix to generate a beautiful but mysterious mood - ambiguous yet soothing, curious yet stable, it's an evocative siren's call full of emotion.
Wistful orchestral piece for chamber strings. Deliberately slightly ambiguous in rhythm as well as mood, it is at times playful, at times unsettled. With hints of romance and longing through the use of sweeping legato, to carefree pizzicato and eager staccatissimo, it's a diverse piece of 20th century style music showcasing many articulations and emotions, the one constant being it's tenderness throughout.
