Hurly Burly was commissioned in 2015 by saxophonist, Simon Watts, for world premiere performance with David Howie (piano) at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music.

In three movements, this 8 minute score exhibits highly energetic, bebop-like rhythms and virtuosic chromatic lines in the first and last movements, while the middle movement showcases a magical moment of reverberant repose. 

Virtuoso Australian percussionist and member of Translucent Duo, David Lockeridge, remarks:

“Fast….energetic…..Fun! Six years ago, Translucent Duo gave the world premiere of their first commissioned work, Whirled Music. … Our performance of the work has changed over the 6 years but our love of performing it only gets stronger!!”  (FaceBook,  12 July 2019).

Fuzzy Logic

Scored for alto saxophone and tuba, Fuzzy Logic is a lively new work written for premiere performance by Phantasmagoria Ensemble at the 2019 Festival Internacional de Saxofón, Palmela, Portugal.

Cast in three movements (I. Vivamente; II. Con espressione; III. Scherzando), the score begins with highly energised material. Spiky, syncopated rhythms give the music a bebop-like feel, as do the chromatic cascades of slippery semiquavers.

Cast in three movements, Matthew Orlovich’s Concertino for Saxophone and Saxophone Orchestra had Dr Michael Duke as soloist, conducted by Dr Jay Byrnes. This modern, tonal work flowed between contrasting moods and it did it with vigour through whirling melodies on solo sax. The bright orchestral colours of this piece came through some inspired playing from everyone and the well-written music; it was a joyous piece.
