Most widely held works by Damian Thantrey
Simoon by Erik Chisholm( )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Simoon--the violent, hot wind that blows in the North African desert--gives its name to August Strindberg's psychological drama, published in 1889 and later described by the Glaswegian composer Erik Chisholm as exciting and frightening. Third in a triptych of operas which the composer wrote after his move to South Africa in the late 1940s, his adaptation of Strindberg's play evokes the desert setting through a blend of the Hindustani scales he had studies in wartime India and a skilful use of free twelve-tone technique, but was never performed with orchestra in his own lifetime"--Container
