“Pillars, erased” – for orchestra

Leave a comment

“Pillars, erased” is a ten-minute work for orchestra. From the start, monolithic chords are presented simultaneously with scattered, manic flourishes. Out of the chaos, comes virtual stillness. These juxtapositions continue throughout the work as the texture oscillates between clarity and amorphousness. A single descending melody gradually emerges from the gestural landscape, at times blending in, at other times revealing itself explicitly.

Many thanks to the Peabody Symphony Orchestra and Maestro Teri Murai for a wonderful reading of a very demanding work.
