Program Note:

This work comprises three movements performed without a break. The first, Aphorisms, is a string of concise, linked but contrasting musical ideas which donít need to be part of a larger argument, coexisting in shared isolation. The second, Reflection, is generally softer and slower with meditative moments perturbed by darker material. The final movement, Fury, portrays relentless and unfocussed anger that, even when catching its breath, wastes little time before reverting to unbending belligerence.

It was commissioned by Lindsay Garritson, who gave the first performance at Weill Recital Hall, Carnegie Hall (New York) on November 11, 2019.
