Four substantial orchestral works by John Woolrich: The Barber's Timepiece, inspired by a short story by Italo Calvino; the Oboe Concerto, featuring Nicholas Daniel; The Ghost in the Machine, which explores the idea of order sliding into chaos; and the Viola Concerto, which is structured as a cycle of 'songs without words', alluding to Tristan, Mozart's Idomeneo and Cosi fan tutte, Beethoven's An die ferne Geliebte and madrigals by Monteverdi.
