Notes

  • Program notes: 

    überschatten is a unique German word which means both "to overshadow" and "to be overshadowed", depending on its context. Naturally, it is a work which was composed in the shadow of an immense repertoire, both old and contemporary. More importantly, however, the concept plays out in the work itself in multiple ways: dynamically, timbrally, and in particular, semiotically. Throughout überschatten, the musical materials are distorted "slowing, darkening, dissolving”before disappearing under bright shafts of instrumental color, prompting the question: what presence gave rise to such shadows?
