Natalie's Suite by Mark John McEncroe

Conductor's Score

Three movement symphonic suite for piano and orchestra.   c.40'00
Three Faces of Addiction
1.  Facing the Demons - Face One, c.23'00
2.  Into the Dark Spaces - Face Two, c.21'00
3.  Moving into the Light - Face Three, c.7'00
The work focuses on the dilemma of addiction.  The overriding tragedy of this malady is denial, and the absolute obsession that one day, the sufferer will gain control over their problem.
The insanity of doing the same thing over and over again, expecting a different result, is at the core of addiction. To illustrate this the composer has deliberately stayed in the home key throughout the entire work, to emphasise this aspect of addiction and create a “tragic soundscape”.
Conductor's score includes a CD of the work performed by The Janacek Philharmonic Orchestra. For parts as PDF download contact keats@wirripang.com.au.  Composed 2014.

Reflections by Mark John McEncroe

CD

This recording of piano music by Mark John McEncroe is brilliantly performed by the John Martin.   Monet's garden paintings are reflected by 13 musical images of Japanese gardens resplendent with fishponds and bonsai.  The music is strongly influenced by J S Bach and baroque styling but is given a contemporary feel by considerable use of jazz harmonies of which John has the exceptional touch to so implement.

Symphonic Poem "The Passing" 2nd Edition - Review Score by Mark John McEncroe

Review Score

For Orchestra, c.7'30. 
This piece was written in the mood that one would associate with the passing of a loved one.  A lament - a process of letting go of old entrenched ideas and value systems that no longer apply or are relevant in one’s ever changing life.  A compelling process, hard and painful, a part of life; a necessity for good mental health, happiness and peace of mind.   (Mark John McEncroe)
Conductor's score includes a CD of the work performed by The Janacek Philharmonic Orchestra.
