About

Scored for violin and cello this work has been described as, "the most extended and dramatic composition on the album... This extraordinary work is a tour de force for violin and cello, rivettingly performed by Douglas Beilman and James Tennant." (Oliver Stead, Music in NZ) "This is a powerful work, an angry work even, from the shuddering, shifting harmonies of the opening tremolo to a cello cadenza of almost Slavic intensity, and the recurring percussive effects the composer demands of her players." (William Dart, Music in NZ)
