Ithaca is inspired by C.P Cafavy's famous poem of that name. The poem does not recount the travails of Odysseus but is, rather, a gentle illustration of the philosophy of Epicurus - a philosophy of understanding and acceptance.
Instrumentation: Clarinet, violin, viola, cello.
Duration: 10 min.
Difficulty: Advanced — Clarinet has some virtuosic sections; strings are medium difficulty
Commission note: Commissioned by the family of Professor Rod McDonald for his 70th birthday
