Piano Concerto No.2 (Boschpoort) image
Piano Concerto No.2 ("Boschpoort") for piano and seven instruments (Flute (doubling piccolo), Bass Clarinet (doubling clarinet in Bb), Trumpet in C, Bass Trombone, Violin, Viola, Cello).

The starting points for this work were twofold: a commission for Ensemble Reconsil which specified the instrumentation, and a longstanding opportunity to collaborate with Willem Boshoff, composing music to complement the images collected on his Druid walks. He suggested images from several of his walks at Boschpoort, the quarry which has yielded the granite for his large-scale sculptures.
The first movement was composed during a joint residency with Willem Boshoff at the Nirox Foundation in October 2012. Most of the second movement was written during the summer of 2013 at the home of friends in the village of Balledent in the French Limousin.
The work can be performed in several ways:
1. as a concert work
2. as an audio-visual presentation with live music
3. as an installation with recorded music
Duration 23 minutes
