Notes

  • Program notes: 

    ''Contrattempo'' was created in 2014, for Cantus Ensemble (who premiered the piece at the Opatija Music Panel in Opatija and later performed the piece at the Dubrovnik Summer Festival and Osor Music Festival). As the title suggests, the piece deals with constant interruptions, insertions and obstructions of the basic musical idea, by using different musical contents and by confronting them. It is clear that the timpani have almost the role of a soloist in this composition.

    The piece was never performed in Canada.
