Anthony Ritchie: Revelations (Orchestral)
This work is published as a perfect bind full score for reference and study.
About the work:
Commissioned by the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra for its 1998 subscription series, Revelations (1998) is a journey through states of high tension and levity, influenced by Ritchie’s meditation on what happens to us after we die, and the near-death experiences that suggest an answer to this question. After opening with an extended passage of dark drama led by writhing contours in the string section, the work is released into lighter material, eventually incorporating fanfare-like statements. In his review of Revelations, MusicWeb International U.K. writer Nick Barnard wrote “This is a highly impressive work on every level and one that deserves far greater dissemination.”
