Notes

  • Program notes: 

    First movement and variations shares with the other piano pieces of mine the interest in working with simultaneous progression through dynamically differentiated layers of sound, a fondness for stepwise motion and a reliance on classical piano sound. The work has two parts: the first is based on the major third, which is ‘delimited’ over and over (albeit never entirely in the same fashion) from the outside and inside, and is shown to be both stable and unstable at the same time. In the second part the same interval is melodically set into motion via chromatic shifts. These are true variations, the theme of which, however, is never heard; it is present as an elemental shape in the background, which the individual variations approach, to a greater or lesser extent, nine times.
