About the work:
The composer writes 'Ice Man is a programmatic work in three movements, further divisible into nine sections. It takes its theme from the plight of an Australian student, James Scott, who was lost in the Himalayan mountains for 43 days before being rescued. When I first read about him in a newspaper article it moved me greatly, but after much initial trouble, I came to the conclusion that it was impossible for me to write a piece of music which reflected Scott's feelings. Ice Man is actually about my feelings - how I feel about the idea of being in his predicament.'

Clear print, binding seems durable, page turns are easy. Only criticism is that the print is quite small - could have been made a fair bit larger without increasing the pages, as there's more white space than necessary. White space could be reduced without losing reading clarity, which would be better with a larger print.
That said, this is a fantastic piece of music and I'm very happy to finally have the whole thing! Final part is my favourite, really spectacular.
