In Memoriam: Concerto for Amplified Cello and Orchestra

2000


‘The world premiere of Matthew Hindson’s Concerto for Amplified Cello and Orchestra: In Memoriam… cast in two movements, “Lament” and “Celebration”, was an imaginative and vividly energetic work and one of the best largescale scores of Hindson’s that I have heard to date…’ The Sydney Morning Herald - Timeout (Peter McCallum), 9 April 2001. ‘…a consistently interesting, intermittently impressive, and occasionally astonishing piece that bespoke a depth and maturity in the work of this young composer that I had not experienced before… In Memoriam was overflowing with ideas and well equipped with surprises… there was no doubt it spoke meaningfully to the much more versatile ears of the twilight Meet the Music audience, with its eclectic mix of young blades and adventurous oldies… Not only did the Hindson draw far and away the most enthusiastic applause of any work on the night’s agenda, but its response eclipsed by a long road that afforded to any other world premiere I have ever attended… it was an achievement of significant enough size to turn many composers of the younger generation green with envy.’ Opera-Opera (David Gyger) May 2001, Page 281.9
