Dedicated to Sharon Bezaly. 'Complex orchestral textures intertwined with an urgent intensity of the flute part leading to an end of meditative sheer beauty, evoking the splendour of Icelandic landscapes' (Bezaly). 'Cast in five movements, each of very different character, the swifter ones eliciting some dazzling fireworks from Bezaly' (Gramophone).
