Aspects of Return : for cello and piano / Jakub Jankowski.

Library shelf no. 787.4183/JAN 1 [Available for loan]

Work Overview

Aspects of Return is a sonata for cello and piano which is cast in three distinct movements. Each movement illustrates a different metaphor of return and is supplemented with a specific quotation. The authors of these quotations come from different backgrounds - psychology, philosophy and poetry respectively - and all point to this central idea of return in unique ways:

I. Prologue: '...there is always the danger that the things we have neglected will return with added force.' - Carl Jung

II. Nocturne: 'Ever-newer waters flow on those who step into the same rivers.' - Heraclitus of Ephesus

III. Capriccio: 'And the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.' - T.S. Eliot
