Product details

Mirrored Metaphors is a concert work for String orchestra. It is inspired by the idea of variation technique as a metaphor and elaborates on it. it also consists of a chorale section that returns several times through the piece. After an atmospheric opening, there is a chorale and from there the piece develops into a dance section. once the character and mood of the opening has been replaced with the dramatic energy of the dance section, it returns to the opening solace and fades away.
