« Worker’s March » – Opus 5 – for Orchestra (2018) (13’30)

The “Marching” in this piece refers to every day’s workers’ march, which doesn’t abide by the rules of standard and fixed rhythms that we’re used to hearing in classical march music.
The whole piece describes the life of these beautiful people and their fight against nature and the war at the same time.
