Work Overview

"A friend of mine once said: "Cathy, one day you will write a very calm and quiet piece." Perhaps he is right, but this is not that piece yet. This is essentially a toccata that attempts to reflect the spectrum of emotions and actions of a person being chased. It jumps between a playful chase, an adventurous runaway, and a run-for-your-life escape. There are moments in the piece where one is trying to catch his breath and regain energy, although there is not much time for that. There is also a part where one hides, anxiously awaiting an opportunity to flee (which might never come); in that section I wanted for every musical phrase to say: "I am scared." Altogether, the piece depicts a risky and desperate yet necessary attempt to get out of the woods. The question is whether this attempt is going to succeed…"
