    This work is incredible. I just recieved the score, and was glad that it was actually pretty straight forward to follow. The notation is extremely avant-garde, with circular patterns, although it all rather makes sense. The orchestra is giant, and the percussion could make anyone tremble. If you have...

    some inexperience writing for percussion, this could teach you an unphantomable amount of ideas and usages of the percussion section, a much neglected part of the orchestra. Beware, though. If you have a limited size library, make sure to clear up some space, because the sheet music is GIGANTIC! I'm talking about maybe 2 to 3 feet here.
