Programme Note

The way I hear and see, it is first as a concerto between the different sections of the orchestra; the woodwinds, brass, percussion and strings. It’s a concerto also between the principal players of the orchestra. And it’s a concerto for orchestra in terms of how new combinations are created.

— Richard Danielpour
