Glimpse : for two pianos / Nicole Murphy.

Library shelf no. 785.6212/MUR 1 [Available for loan]

Work Overview

Glimpse takes inspiration from a scene described in Zadie Smith's collection of essays, Intimations. In Smith's musings, written during the early months of the COVID-19 lockdown, she recounts time spent observing a tulip amid a relentless cityscape. On reflection, she describes this moment as a glimpse or preview of the sudden slowing of the pace of life during the COVID-19 lockdowns. Glimpse reflects this transition from motion to stillness, with the slower pace revealing thoughts and ideas that were always present, but previously concealed beneath the constant activity.
