A requiem : for bass flute and vibraphone / Katia Tiutiunnik.

Library shelf no. 785.5612/TIU 1 [Available for loan]

Work Overview

A Requiem is intended as a musical symbol referring to the concept of the requiem as both a Roman Catholic ritual held for the deceased and also as an act or token of remembrance for an individual who has passed over. The composition was not inspired by the death of any particular individual; rather, it is concerned with the idea of death in the most abstract sense, encompassing the mystical notion of spiritual death as a necessary precursor to enlightenment. In this sense, it is symbolically related to a number of other compositions of mine-including my string quartet, Night Journey-which embrace the mythological motif of "spiritual rebirth at the eighth stage, following a journey through seven stages and death".
