Salt Junk on Doulton Plates

for orchestra

Premiere: West Australian Symphony Orchestra (James Ledger, cond.)

Stephen de Filippo’s Salt Junk on Doulton Plates assaults the ear with abrupt, confrontational thuds. It’s violent, threatening, in-your-face material with fragmented outbursts that don’t so much attract the attention as attack it.

Neville Cohn, The West Australian
