New Moon of the Seasons Live BBC Concert Orchestra Watford Colesseum

 

 

Commissioned by the BBC for the BBC Concert Orchestra

The first performance of What We See in the Stars was given by the BBC Concert Orchestra, conducted by Hugh Brunt, at Watford Colosseum, on 13th April 2021. The piece follows the cycle of the Moon through the seasons. The Moon is associated with the ebb and flow of both the physical and non-physical. 

I wanted to create this sense of gradual energy change in the piece through the long-sustained chords that reach out to silence... And then return. The cycle starts and ends with the Winter Moon. During the piece, the music travels through the 4 seasons.
