The Immortal was commissioned by the BBC World Service, and was premiered at the BBC Proms in 2004. This work pays tribute to the influence of Chinese artists and intellectuals in the twentieth century. With an undercurrent of tranquillity and meditation, the work features a powerful and rhythmic introduction, from which emerges a section of sustained high-pitched glissandos, as well as lyrical melodies and expressive glissandos that characterise many of the solo motifs.
