Details

Stravinsky was the first 20th century composer whose work had as immediate an impact on me as music of the past. Perhaps this is why, when I visited the cemetery in San Michele (Venice) where his remains lie, I was jolted out of a rather long non-creative period. It was immediately afterwards that I jotted down the somewhat, for me, bold and direct ‘theme’ in octaves, with which the piece begins, and the rest followed quite quickly. The piece consists of a number of apparently unrelated ideas, starkly juxtaposed, which are then ‘clarified’ by dint of varying repetition, becoming familiar together, so that they no longer seem unrelated.  It ends with a short ‘reminiscence’ from Stravinsky’s Symphony of Psalms’ played in canon.
