Judith Bailey: Cliff Walk Symphony Op. 82

This work was composed in 2007 for the Cornwall Chamber Orchestra who gave the first performance in January 2008. The title in Cornish is Kessenyans kerth alls. It is in a single movement about eight minutes long and consists of closely related material. After a brief introduction, there is a jaunty theme which recurs in part during the central slow section and in fugal form at the end. There are several pauses which could relate to seeing a new view on turning a corner or reaching the brow of a hill.
