Twisted Gyves

Additional Information

Written for the Endymion Ensemble.

Music which mixes freely composed dissonance and more straightforward harmonic sequence. At this stage I still felt uneasy about completely losing the comforting blanket of bland atonality but was determined to leave it behind me as soon as I could find a way. You can hear this disjunction unfold as angular atonality juxtaposes static, revolving harmonies. But a threatening, brooding melodic fragment suddenly bursts out of its chains and spits minor key venom at the surrounding material.



For 2 Flutes, 2 Clarinets, Piano, Harp, 2 Violins, Viola, Cello & Double Bass
