Premiere: Performed by Cormac Ó hAodáin, 28th October, Kevin Barry Room, National Concert Hall 2014.
Landscape for solo horn is an evocation of an expansive outdoor scene. The piece falls into four sections, each of which organically moves from one to the next, gaining in momentum. The changes in motif and character reflect the constant irregularity of a landscape and the play of light across it. The build-up of energy is released in the final section in a series of interspersed proclamatory gestures.
