View From Olympus 2019 - new recital version

Commissioned by Fabian Ziegler, this new version of View From Olympus (originally a concerto for piano, percussion, and orchestra) has been transformed into a recital version for the two soloists (Fabian and Akvilė Šileikaitė) and digital audio. The backing track - mixed by Lee Prebble at Surgery Studios in Wellington - has been ‘contemporized’ incorporating electric guitars, synths, sub basses, dulcimers and zournas, and many more new textures. It is punchier and even more epic than the original.
