Product details

This piece was the first of a series of pieces called 'Cycles'. They are all based on a formal plan in which the characteristics and implications of the beginning segments are reflected in each subsequent section, from small to large, as the work develops. All parameters are considered: tempo, duration, texture, dynamics, register, mood, etc. The characteristics of each work create its originality as they do in all music, and a basic tenet of the technique states that "structural discipline permits maximum freedom within the subdivisions of that structure."

Published by: Australian Music Centre — 1 facsimile score (8p. -- A4 (portrait))

Difficulty: Advanced — Difficult from most points of view. Although there are few barlines, the score is less daunting than it seems..

Duration: 4 min.

Commission info: Commissioned by Elizabeth Anderson as a work of contemporary music forming part of her Master degree in harpsichord performance.
