Notes

  • Program notes: 

    Program notes: There is in HESPER(Í)A – waters, lights (2016) a continuous flow - a sonic metaphor of a path leading towards an Eden space: the garden guarded by the four nymphs-daughters of Atlas, Hespería being one of them. This flow is created by the alert and always surprising rhythm. Also characteristic for the piece is the theme of graceful playing (giocoso), by using mostly the high register of the instrument and a Baroque-like ornamentation: grace notes, trills, and tremolo. HESPER(Í)A – waters, lights is narrative and evocative at the same time, still the primary character of the work is an exuberant one.
