Additional Information

Commissioned by Live Music Now Scotland for the Dohnányi String Trio as part of the 2016 Kimie Composition Prize, funded by the Kimie Trust.

’10 Polaroids’ is a work for string trio in ten short movements, each one based on a different Polaroid photograph taken by the seminal Russian filmmaker, Andrey Tarkovsky. The images were selected from a collection of Tarkovsky’s personal Polaroids, which were curated and edited by Giovanni Chiaramonte and Tarkovsky’s son, published under the title, ‘Instant Light’. A rather fitting summation of the photographs is posed in the introduction to ‘Instant Light’ - “His images seem to capture eternity in a moment.”
