'A Broken Vow'
for 14 players
'A Broken Vow' was written for a chamber orchestra derived from the West Australian Symphony Orchestra. It was premiered by WASO June 10, 2014 at ABC Studios in East Perth.
“Mark Holdsworth’s Chamber Symphony: A Broken Vow impressed particularly with whispered harp arabesques... and its moments of grim, hand-wringing anguish that gripped the attention. With grunting bassoon and fiercely focused upper woodwinds, this was a work which, with its technical ingenuity, didn’t so much attract the attention as seize it, vice-like.” — Neville Cohn
Recorded for ABC Classic FM.
