Programme Note:
The title and concept of this work was inspired by the text of Hesiod, a Greek Poet who lived around 750 to 650 BC. As Hesiod says: —First Chaos came, and then broad-bosomed Earth, The everlasting seat of all that is, And Love. In other words, After Chaos, the Earth and Love, these two, came into being. (From Plato’s Symposium)

This work would not have been possible without the generous support of Harvey and Louise Glatt, who commissioned it.
