'Good and Evil' is classical music and the 4 movements are all written for the chamber orchestra.
This work is politically motivated, and, Lien admits to it, marked by a certain artifice. Movements 1 and 2 are what Lien would refer to as 'modernist,' the 2nd movement, however, somewhat more on the early, or 'neoclassical' side. 'Sacred Circle' is inspired by traditional church music; it is also a romantic piece. The 4th movement, 'Ascent,' must be considered impressionist and the finest piece, in some respects, of the work as such.
