Trans-solo 1

for piano

2010   3'   pub: Composers Edition

The four original Trans-solos derive from the quartet Transitions, for violin, clarinet, cello and piano, written in 2000 following a commission by pianist Margie Wu and the “eppur si muove” Foundation in Zürich.

Initially written as four separate cadenzas of Transitions, I have extracted and re-visited the four solos as single musical moments written for the virtuosity of a distinct performer. As the word ‘Trans’ may suggest, I have considered virtuosity as a search for ever-changing perceptions of the ineffable.
