Pipe Dreams


by Carl Vine

‘A haunting central passage provided a satisfying emotional counterweight to the scintillating brilliance of the outer sections.’

The Australian (Murray Black), 19 October 2009


‘Pahud returned for Vine’s Pipe Dreams, a new, immediately attractive piece written for these players, premiered in Sydney in July. Three sections (moderate, slow, fast) offer dividing marks. But Vine’s imagination flows without ceasing, from the first flute arabesques over syncopated, hiccupping strings to a finale seemingly written to showcase the ACO’s genius for playing fast without ever falling over. Robust, idiomatically written, with conventional tonality just about in earshot, Pipe Dreams is a dream of a piece; I can’t wait to hear it again.’

The Times (Geoff Brown), 24 October 2003
