Sheet Music: Score
ata whenua : for violin, cello and piano / Rosalind Page.
by Rosalind Page (2011)
ata whenua, land of reflections, is a compositional
ecosphere inspired by Maori for Fjordland; ata - morning, images,
shadows, reflections and whenua - land, for it was whilst
traversing the 45th parallel South that the initial oncept for
this piano trio was born in the South Island of New Zealand.
Six months later, whilst I was nestled within another fjord 66° North toward the near Arctic in Siglufjördur, Iceland, the composition acquired its true form as a metaphor for a liminal subconscious reverie on the fragile balance between longing and belonging.The essence of the work can be described as movement, flow, direction and focus in the cosmos and in the soul.
