Lawrence Dillon's Orpheus in the
Afterworld (Finale movement) to be performed by the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra at the National Flute Association Concerto
Concert on August 10, 2013 with Carol Wincenc, Flute, and
Ransom Wilson, Conductor.
The third movement, BACCHANAL, combines aggressive rhythms and the ground bass from earlier movements into a furious bacchanal that demands percussive residual tones and stratospheric playing from the flutist.
"Lawrence Dillon's Flute Concerto is truly an outstanding work. The piece successfully maintained an extremely coherent and powerful dramatic flow. Dillon's unique compositional voice clearly makes itself heard. A passionate and often unpredictable work." - The Charlotte Observer
