Katharsis

For Cello and Ensemble
(2013) 25 minutes

"So abundant are the musical ideas that the concerto needs its six movements to accommodate them comfortably, but none is left undeveloped – indeed all are most satisfyingly resolved. There is real concision here –absolutely no padding. The music can effortlessly evoke at different moments both great depths of feeling and a huge sense of fun. But there is nothing clichéd or artful about it, simply a composer revelling in the realisation of her own considerable abilities." Richard Hanlon, MusicWeb International

"Lyrically impassioned music." Robert Hugill, Planet Hugill
