Description: Ancient Walls for solo violin (2012) was commissioned by Hungarian concert violinist Rodrigo Puskás, living in South Korea.
Ancient Walls is a one-movement work for the violin that echoes the sounds of the ancient world. The title is a metaphor for the 'walls’ that, literally and figurative, sometimes separate cultures and people from each other; and also alludes to the common European heritage shared by Rodrigo Puskás and the composer, both natives of fiercely independent cultures that have struggled over time to retain their identity.
