From the original programme notes:
“My Concerto explores large-scale, blurred sounds; the orchestral writing generally being very dense. The keyboardists begin together (as a piano duet) and quickly become independent. Other soloists, including the percussionists (particularly the marimba), violoncello and horn, feature throughout, often forming units with other instruments (e.g. marimba, celesta and piano). Concerto marks the end of the fourth and final year of my studies at the Junior RNCM.”
