This work is in two movements. The first is dark and rather brooding in nature, while the second, though still somewhat dark, becomes a little more lively.
Thanks to the Elision Ensemble for commissioning the work.

"... an exciting and truly spectacular recording."
"Gareth Davis, principal flute of the London Symphony, rises to every challenge with exhilarating aplomb..."
"Unlike many of his colleagues, Knehans does not write music coming close to film music. His tone poems always are an expression of dramatic sensations or of poetic sensitivity. In the Brno Philharmonic's performances the brilliantly orchestrated works leave a durable impression."
