Whitewater : for 12 solo strings

by Matthew Hindson (1999)

Work Overview

Whitewater, as the title suggests, was inspired by the rushing of water in creeks, rivers and streams around rocks and other obstacles. The work has been loosely structured around the progess of a river - twisting, turning ; sometimes there are sections like others, others are seemingly totally different, yet always part of the one entity.

There are three main sections in this predominantly fast piece. Each of these contains virtuosic solo playing as well as tutti writing.
