Read notes for Open the Door (1990) for orchestra

... The piece that opened the concert, Gwyneth Walker's orchestral overture Open the Door, mirrored Tchaikovsky's emotions in minature.

After a somber cello opening, brief flurries of notes from various instruments took over, only to be interrupted midway by polite doorbell-like sounds, then topped off by an abrupt, door-pounding conclusion.
