Work Overview

Written in a serial style Quidong was the second piece I wrote with my composition teacher in Berlin, Isang Yun. Following Korokon for violin and piano written earlier that year, Quidong shows the development of a very strict compositional technique which interestingly was of no interest to Yun. My fellow student, English composer Keith Gifford and I spent many hours analysing and discussing the work of recent European composers and that, more than anything, provided the rigour and forged the direction of my work for the next years.
