“William is a great composer, but so far he’s basically dealt with small ensembles,” Young said. “He was a little shocked, but I was absolutely delighted when I told him.’The whole toolbox is complete, with orchestras, choirs, soloists, etc. Good luck!’”

Burton’s work includes the sound of clapboard made of wood recovered from the floor of the opera house before the work began.

“I hope my people are proud,” he added.
