Product details

Inspired by the famous mathematical conjecture of Lothar Collatz, The Collatz Variations deals with the illusion of freedom. The backbone of the work is a delirious set of variations, played entirely with a muted sound. But this music is interrupted, threatened and eventually smothered by a recurring chorale, played with an open sound and led by the French horn.
