Towering Above (2016)

 

Towering Above is a symphonic suite, written for a concert where it appears next to Tombeau de Couperin (1917) and the fourth symphony of Schubert (1817). Towering Above (2017) is a work that's very aware of it's place in this history. In 4 movements (Layers, Corners, Towers and Facades) the work departs from the shapes and forms of a baroque dance suite (as heard in the Ravel), and replaces them with geometrical forms inspired by famous buildings.
