The Incident at Ezinar

by Matthew James Briggs



The Incident at Ezinar is an exciting, full-speed-ahead, composition for chamber orchestra in a post-minimalistic style. It was composed in March and April of 2015. It is an intense one-way composition which is always driving forward. Tension, which builds throughout, is not released until the final note. The orchestra gets a strenuous workout, especially viola, cello and bass, which provide the engine of forward momentum throughout.

Where is Ezinar? What happened there? These mysteries are left to the listener's imagination.
