Chainwheel / Alex Chilvers.

Library shelf no. 785.64121/CHI 1 [Available for loan]

Work Overview

Chainwheel was composed for a premiere performance alongside Mozart's Sonata for four hands in B flat major (KV 358). I have taken small fragments from the 18th-century work and applied a range of transformations to create a large-scale, high-energy piece that utilises the full expressive range of the double-manual harpsichord.
