Commissioned by the Australian Chamber Orchestra, who gave the first performance on 15 June 1991, at the Concert Hall of the Sydney Opera House. The soloists were Richard Tognetti (violin), Geoffrey Collins (flute & piccolo), David Nuttall (oboe & cor anglais), Geoff Collinson (french horn).
The Vine concerto grosso moves from complexity . . . and then towards an instrumentally dazzling ending with such assurance and economy as to claim a classic status of its own. Here, in this intently held balance of means and ends, is music of a kind which might establish, rather than end, a genre. [Roger Covell, Sydney Morning Herald, June 17, 1991]
