Parts for a Floating Space
version for cello and piano(2002/2019)
|Premiere||February 3, 2019 Newburyport, MA, First Religious Society of Newbury Port (USA) · Gwen Krosnick, cello; Qing Jiang, piano|
Parts for a Floating Space was written for and premiered by the Yesaroun’Duo on April 11, 2002 in Boston at Temple Ohabei Shalom’s magnificent sanctuary. It consists of discrete parts, not conceived as inseparable whole. I hope to use the richness of the individual parts to construct an open-ended architecture with not one, but multiple identities. Each part may stand on its own, combine with one another, collide in superimposition, or connect into a larger continuum. Yet, all of its sounds and rhythmic patterns are derived from one single source.
The version for cello and piano was arranged for and dedicated to Gwen Krosnick and Qing Jiang who gave its world premiere on February 3, 2019 at the First Religious Society of Newbury Port, Newburyport, MA.
