TENUOT, 1990 (revised 1999), for orchestra
Commissioned by the Cologne Radio Symphony Orchestra
Publisher: Ricordi | Duration: 13 min.
Listen to The Israel Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Zubin Mehta
The work deals with contrasting and complementary relationships between the full orchestra and a chamber group of instruments such as a string quartet or quintet within the orchestra itself.
Homogeneous and clear sonic figures are dispersed at various
points in the acoustic space and they are connected by fragments of melodies (played by the solo instruments or the chamber groups) that pass by and disappear stealthily within the space weaving into their heavy textures an element of continuous motion.
