The Wild Hunt was written while I was at University. We were set the task to write for a small chamber Orchestra consisting of Flute, Clarinet, Horn, Harp, Violin and Cello. It was an open task with no theme or style set just that the piece should be around 10 minuets in duration.
As the title of the piece state the work is depicting a hunt. Please have a listen a decided for yourself if the animal survives or not.
