Chamber ensemble (Fl, Cl, Ob, Vln, Vc, Pn, Perc)

Premiered by Mizzou New Music Ensemble, check this link.

Closely related to “About Oneself” this piece is second part of a main idea idea. This movement is then the counterpart, where I took music from others to create my own. I exist because they exist and they exist through me, might be a simple summary of this piece. Music by Jolivet, Messiaen, Debussy, Cage, and Druckman passed through my filter. Should you recognize them? I don’t know. Are they present? Absolutely! Citations in classical music is a huge topic, Berio’s Symphony is a master piece. Recently I listen to Cuban Leo Brouwer fourth String quartet and got really excited when I discovered Mozart and Stravinsky in it. Sometime we all need a little bit of help from the past.
