'Broken Lute, six pieces for violin alone', is written on a Chinese Ming story, 'The Minister, The Lute and the Woodcutter' from which Goehr has extracted key sentences and placed them at particular points in the score. Animating the poetic text, the virtuosic violin line captures elements of the story's characters taking performer and audiences on a fantastic journey experiencing storms at sea, mountain scenery, friendship and loss.
