Layers of Love (2015)

for 13 players

Layers of Love grew out of a feeling I sometimes experience of longing for something invisible, unknown and (inevitably) unattainable. Like any emotion it is fleeting, it comes and goes, it varies in its intensity… But it always returns. It is maybe a glimpse of the possibility of beauty and transcendence from within the midst of a world where such things are generally granted little importance. It was written in gratitude to the Ernst von Siemens Musikstiftung for their most generous composer prize.
