'Intimate Curve'

Graham's recent orchestral piece, Intimate Curve, will receive its second performance by BBC National Orchestra of Wales on 17 January 2017.    Originally commissioned by the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, he was asked to write a Concerto for Orchestra and the piece focuses on various solo instruments and sections of the orchestra before piecing them together into one large mass.   


Desire and arousal.  The interaction of so many different sensory changes.  Touch, smell, emotional loading.  Internal conflict, promise yet restraint, control versus abandon.  Pupil dilation, blood flow changing, skin colour altering, sweat glands rolling. Each one feeding off the other in a state of heightened awareness.   It's so powerful its audible.
