HAMMERING

(2 fl, 2 ob, 2 cl, 2 fg, 4 co, 3 tpt, 3 tb, tuba, ti, perc., hp., stgs)

A short study in gradually building up a piece from very few resources. An analogy with cathedral building would not be inappropriate... Only the cathedral comes crashing down at the end. The possibility of a new beginning is suggested.

 

This is the BBC Phil, with James MacMillan.
