About the work
This 15-minute work is cast as a single-movement musical narrative. It opens with a brief orchestral introduction that sets up the sound world that the journey takes place in. One by one, each soloist enters with their own powerful statements to determine who will be the dominant figure. However, as the orchestra begins to make its presence more strongly felt, the soloists evolve from being three individual players to one organic entity; or one super-cello composed of three players. This unity becomes the countering force to the string orchestra and is played out like a battle through to the very end.
