Completed as the major work during Martin Lodge's year as composer in residence with the Auckland Philharmonia, this single movement symphony for large orchestra has been hailed as "a remarkably poised and beautiful work... [containing] some of the most moving and beautiful melodic writing I have heard ... Martin Lodge is a single-purposed writer with the true symphonist's knack of sustaining an idea with economy". (Ian Dando, Music in New Zealand).
Commissioned by the Auckland Philharmonia and premiered by them (conducted by Octav Calleya) during the composer's residency with the orchestra.
