Description
‘The concerto is itself. Life and the wind play a part.’ (Gerald Barry)

Written for Nicolas Hodges, Barry’s concerto displays his characteristic musical zeal and unconventionality. The wind the composer refers to in his description of the work comes in the form of the two wind machines that make up two thirds of the percussion section: the other third is a bass drum.
