    For Piano – Part G (2014)

    Some composers tend to constantly revise their list of works while others, metaphorically speaking, basically compose a single work their whole life. Up to this point all suggests that I clearly belong to the second group. About ten years ago I have decided to label all my compositions simply by letters, since they have been part of a larger whole, while the title of the "cycle" would simply be a description of the instrumental set. I would have rather used only the letters, however, this decision would probably not be entirely practical: firstly, I would soon come to the end of the alphabet; not to mention that with the passing of pieces I myself often do not remember which piece corresponds to which letter so the confusion would become unbearable. I have picked the letters because they connote a sense of hierarchy to a lesser extent, at least for me, than for example the numbers. This equality of individual parts is associated with the fact that any part can be performed individually or together with any number of any other parts. In case a performance consists of more than one part the order is entirely a matter of choice of the performer. I have been working on the set of piano pieces called For Piano with only minor interruptions almost continuously since the beginning of 2013. Parts G and L have been chosen and first performed by Ian Pace at the Contempuls contemporary music festival in Prague in November 2016.
