Product details

Blue Rose (2003)

(a simpler and shorter version of "For Rosa")

Blue Rose is based on two folk melodies which have been freely developed. It uses uneven beats and bars which creates a rocking feeling that is somewhat reminiscent of Balkan music. The title refers to the way the piece starts, unfolding and blooming as it slowly becomes stronger, like the blue light of dawn. It is one of the few pieces of mine that is based in a major key (D major). Apart from the string quartet version, there is also a version for violin and piano.
Also a version for 3 violins exists, this version has never been performed.
