Notes

Ligatures are graphical symbols used c. 9th-15th centuries to notate groups of notes. This set of short pieces explores different gestures, and the idea of connectedness in general. The first piece, Portrait, is a tribute to a musician and an important teacher of mine, Rita Wagner. It is a portrait of her energy, humour, and kindness. The second, a Sarabande, was written in Cornwall, and partly depicts by its open skies, old churches, and rhythms of nature. The third, Grao, is a paraphrase of a Thai traditional court piece found in “Khon” theatre, with a distorted Viennese lullaby inserted. The final movement, Chorale, begins with a distant memory of a melody that fades in and out of consciousness, and ends in a prayer.
