'Four world premieres. Three generations of composers. I explore Alpine glaciers and the mysteries of light with John Tyndall in both my cello concerto Excursions and Ascents, written especially for Martin Johnson, Cello Section Leader of the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra, and in Diffractions for orchestra. Nicola LeFanu's Threnody laments the brutality of war with Euripides and Brendan Kennelly. David Bremner investigates the lyricism of the dotted line with Gap Static.' Gráinne Mulvey
