INTENSE RELATIONSHIPS is the first movement of My Piano Concerto No. 1.Exploiting the percussive nature of the piano, the various elements within the orchestra explore their relationship with the piano. The music is explosive, passionate, driving, yet also has moments of excitement and reflection.
If there is a dark nature to it, relationships have that same element. Even the most honest relationships carry with them a darker side. It's getting through to the other side that makes them worthwhile, even if the journey is painful.
