Program Notes

Stone, Mountain, Magic was commissioned from Tom Davoren by an international consortium. He has taken his inspiration from Welsh mythology: King Arthur's Stone, Cefn Bryn and the birth-place of Merlin the magician depicted in the colourful score.

The dark-toned opening features sustained chords with tuned percussion underpinning woodwind figures, followed by bassoons, trumpet and saxes, whilst the trumpet was backed by glockenspiel and xylophone. The final section includes some lively battle music which brought the piece to a close.
