Written for Hungarian concert violinist Rodrigo Puskás.
Ancient Walls is a one-movement solo work for the violin that explores the ancient ‘sounds’ shared by the old world. The title is a methaphor for the ‘walls,’ literally and figurative, that sometimes separate cultures from each other – during their own time and also over time. The title also refers to the common European heritage of Rodrigo Puskás and the composer, natives of ‘independent’ cultures that have struggled over time to retain their identity.
