'Light and space have been abiding sources of inspiration in my compositions for many years and are at the heart of this concert. The serenely luminous Sound Fields, composed in his ninety-ninth year by Elliott Carter, and A Lay for a Light-Year by Jerome de Bromhead are juxtaposed with my own works, which seek to balance a calm reflective lyricism with gestures of explosive energy'. John Buckley
