Keen is a word used to describe a wailing sound. The pitches are derived from the German name B-A-C-H, which are resolved by a chord incorporating the 12 tones (as suggested by his 24th fugue subject in volume 1 of the Well-Tempered Clavier). The element of chance resides in the direct glissandi on the strings. The work is dedicated to Martin Wright, manager of Move records, in honour of 50 years of the Move label.
Duration: 5 min.
