OPUS No 17 – Abandoned & Displaced
We are approaching the 20th anniversary of the attacks on the twin towers on 9/11.
We have also seen the withdrawal of military personnel and some civilians from Afghanistan after 20 years of deployment.
This piece has been composed, for cello and piano, with these events and the conflicts of the world in mind.
The largest mass movement of humanity in history has also taken place over many years.
So many have been abandoned or displaced. This piece reflects the middle eastern cry of the refugee, whilst acknowledging the bravery and compromise of the military personnel and the situations that they have been faced with.
The ending imagines the planes taking off, from Afghanistan, with refugees looking on with their hearts being broken.
