Sheet Music: Score & Part(s)
Five Postscripts : for violin and piano / Jack Symonds.
by Jack Symonds (2013)
Designed as a companion piece to Still the Light Burns, these miniatures are reflections of some of the larger piece's musical concerns and obsessions. The first is high and immobile, suspended in the air before a single fall and ascent which will be a feature of all the movements. The second is two simple gestures - a quick dialogue and a rhythmic disintegration. The third is a palindrome around a phrase from Zemlinsky's opera Der Traumgörge where the central character asks the meaning of artistic beauty from a mirror. The fourth movement is a tiny mensuration canon which prefigures the final barcarolle - a last tribute to Henze gathering in all the other postscripts.
