Notes

In this piano quintet, the piano and the strings seem to inhabit different musical worlds. The strings start off in a mesh or haze of independent lines, while the piano offers quiet, solid chords, like sparse figures appearing in a fog. Just when the piano gradually pulls the strings into its chordal world, it abandons chords for a sparse single note line, as though finding a new language; the piano and strings never quite meet exactly, but coexist independently. The work is continuation of my deep interest in exploring harmony.
