This work was commissioned by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. It was first performed on 2nd May 2000 at the Barbican Centre, London by Richard Watkins.

Peter Maxwell Davies: The horn writing is extremely virtuoso throughout not least in exploring the full range of the horn, from the deepest notes in the bass, normally exclusive to an orchestral fourth horn player, to the highest, most exposed sostenuto of a first horn soloist, presentingherechallenges of embouchure and sheer stamina I should think fairly unprecedented.
