Alter(n)ations : for piano and vibraphone / Brendan Colbert

Library shelf no. 785.3912/COL 1 [Available for loan]

Work Overview

Alter(n)ations started out in 2006 as a trio for vibraphone, piano and harpsichord that was programmed for the debut concert of the Montreal-based ensemble 'Contemporary Keyboard Society'. The concert duly went ahead, but the premiere of Alter(n)ations was deferred on 'workload grounds' and later, on the departure of the percussionist from the group, suspended indefinitely.

I thought the material deserved better and some years later opted to recast it for piano and vibraphone. Finally (re)completed in October 2014, Alter(n)ations has a duration of approximately 7½ minutes, and can be performed either as a standalone work or as the third movement of 'Extrication' (2014-2021: for piano, glock/xyl, vibes = Sinuosity + InDecision + Alter(n)ations + …this certainty…)
