Sheet Music: Score
Surface tension : for solo guitar / Richard Charlton.
by Richard Charlton (1998)
Surface Tension was written for Timothy Kain and premiered by him in March 1999. The title alludes to liquids and the unstable tension of their surface-film. The music begins with an underlying tension, this builds up and then breaks-out in the second half of the piece. Formally the work is in three sections; an opening 'toccata', then a sort of pent-up 'moto perpetuo' that leads to a free 'passacaglia' over a ground bass. The 'ground' is actually the opening passage of the toccata!— Richard Charlton, June 1999
