  • ‘Stormscape’ – for Wind Orchestra in two movements

‘Stormscape’ is work of two contrasting movements. The first, ‘Skyscape’, evokes images of shimmering atmosphere and gentle calm. Throughout this movement, underlying tension builds marking the arrival of the dense ‘Firestorm’. The second movement takes the listener on a aurally dramatic journey into the heart of the destructive firestorm. This movement is characterised by relentlessly driving raw motivic material.
