Work Overview

This rhapsodic contemporary piano solo, was written in memory of jazz legend Bill Evans.

It explores the rich harmonies that can be created on a keyboard and makes use of interesting chord clusters, which were a feature of Evan's playing, rippling figures and extensive flourishes. The final section builds to a climax with a syncopated chordal section, followed by a reuse of early figures which establish a quiet and haunting mood. Lastly, there are three arpeggiated chord flourishes and the whole work ends on an open E major chord, overlaid by a C major triad, which encourages some interested harmonics to come forth from the instrument.
