With the Chamber Concerto I wanted to write a piece that exploited the virtuosity of the players and different instrumental groups of BCMG. The music is sectional and each uses different and contrasting instrumental combinations. There are fifteen distinctly identifiable sections: with a sense of urgency; bold and expressive; dry and machine-like; dancing and pushing forward; oboe cadenza; transparent and ghostly; slower (clarinet solo); tom-tom cadenza; with passion; hard and driving; turbulent; jazzy; violin cadenza; scintillating; frozen.
