Misc. Comments

Lament reflects the composer's interest in the intersection of eastern and western cultures as evident in the emphasis on pitched percussion and various contrapuntal techniques. Baroque performance practices (strong beat, terraced dynamics) are to be observed. More specifically, the work utilizes a cinematic perspective, beckoning the listener to reflect on tragedy. In addition, the tuba can be considered to play the role of sage. Lament also serves as the first movement of Mark Petering's Concerto for Tuba and Orchestra which is also featured on imslp. Regarding the work's Charlotte Symphony premiere, Conductor Christopher Warren-Green is also conductor of the London Chamber Orchestra and is the favorite conductor of the British Royal family, having conducted the ceremonial music for both Prince William and Prince Harry's weddings. �
