Aspects of Return is a sonata for cello and piano which
is cast in three distinct movements. Each movement illustrates a
different metaphor of return and is supplemented with a specific
quotation. The authors of these quotations come from different
backgrounds - psychology, philosophy and poetry respectively -
and all point to this central idea of return in unique ways:
I. Prologue: '...there is always the danger that the things we have neglected will return with added force.' - Carl Jung
II. Nocturne: 'Ever-newer waters flow on those who step into the same rivers.' - Heraclitus of Ephesus
III. Capriccio: 'And the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.' - T.S. Eliot
Instrumentation: Cello, piano.
Duration: 19 min.
Contents note: I. Prologue -- II. Nocturne -- III. Capriccio.
Commission note: Commissioned for Musica Viva by the Adelaide Commissioning Circle, and the Australian Executor Trustees Community Program
