I found the piece to be quite fascinating.
Once you get beyond the chilling and shrieking start..the work that unfolds is quite engaging. Although it is quite a restless caustic piece, it has many remarkable passages and effects which will hold your interest to the
very end. Atonal??..perhaps..but clever memorable themes none the less, and the ending is exhillerating.
I found it difficult to find comparisions to any one else, the use of percussive and whirring strings was quite extraordinary. I guess Bartok came to mind, especially in the slow movement, but the orchestration and development was much more dense.
