Philip Grange’s Violin Concerto focuses on the notion of the individual and their place in relation to the mass and how groups behave.

“The mass has an animalistic side to it. I'm interested in the problem of how people behave in the context of this rise of mass.”

Inspired by collections of music inspired by swarms, and by the movement of murmurations of starlings and clouds of insects, the individual - represented by the violin soloist - moves both with the mass and outside of it, as if the soloist could be any one of the string section, symbolic of each one of us as members of the mass capable of singling ourselves out.
