This score includes a brand new recording of the work by Megumi Fujita and Philippa Davies. 



The Balancing of Opposites takes as its inspiration the sculpture of Discobolus by Myron, so wonderfully depicting calm and effort, poise and balance, and yet on the verge of a powerful force. I have set the five movements of the music within a flavour of ancient Greece; Contemplation, Insight, Muse, Reason, and Debate. For me, these are encapsulated within the sculpture, but the spirit of the music is understated and somewhat philosophical - If there is a sense of the breeze over the Aegean, all the better.
