The Orion work was commissioned by the Cultural Olympiad 2004 and received its premiere performance in Athens, June 2004, just before the Olympic Games. To mark this special event I chose to collaborate with a group of established musicians and composers - a group whose multiethnic origins reflect the international nature of the Olympiad itself.
