The Four Towers was composed as a jazz suite for the National Ballet in Reykjavik in 1985, and it was performed that same year by the Icelandic group Yggdrasil under Kristian Black's direction. It is made up of five pieces, the four towers are each scored for three movements and the final work, "Child's Drawing," is a study on a tone poem. The music is largely laid-back, almost jazz fusion groove jazz in places, but the compositions themselves are so sophisticated in their sense of unfolding drama and color, it's impossible to write them.
