Motion and Ritual : for 2 pianos and 2 percussionists

by Luke Styles (2018)

Work Overview

Inspired by the Bartok Sonata for the same players (but employing different percussion instruments) this work explores forward moving fast music, octaves and waves of trills in its two outer movements. In the centre of the work stands a still ritual like music, a moment of strange calm before the music takes off again with a new harmonic density.
