Work Overview

Icebergs come in many shapes and sizes exhibiting smooth and jagged contours in a mixture of white and blue palettes. These variations are inspired by iceberg silhouettes. The jagged staccato clusters played in odd
meters are offset by smooth five note appoggiaturas and glissandi which suggest slippery surfaces. The piece exhibits a youthful exuberance as it moves suddenly between registers of the toy piano and contrasting sections. The end of the work slowly melts away as the staccato and syncopated variations give way to a sparse texture with long phrases.
