Paraflame

ANDY JACKSON

 

The theme of this commission to welcome the Paralympic Flame to the North East in 2012 was "optimism, brightness, fire". So I used the shimmering sound of a suspended cymbal throughout and overlaid this with motifs taken from Handel's "Musik for the Royal Fireworks" and some incendiary orchestral effects to create a piece which exhudes energy and positivity.
