Work Overview

Vortex was written in 2018 for the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra. It maintains an unrelenting pace and energy across its brief span, beginning with bubbling activity before descending into a veritable whirlpool. In the final bars, the full power of the orchestra caves into the vortex.
