The Schubert Blues (piano solo)
Some time ago Roger Woodward asked me to write a piano solo work for the Spring Festival. This request resulted in "The Schubert Blues". It is based on Schubert's "The Death and the Maiden"'s main motive which eventually leads to a round of eight chords, something of a "memory cycle", as these harmonies have a flavour of a music long past. My main interest lay in the radicality of the motiv's transformation-harmony, pitch and register rather than rhythm and the degree of the repetitiveness of the chord cycles.
