Notes

  • Program notes: 

    Pangaea
    The score of Andrej Slezák’s Pangaea immediately evokes the music of György Ligeti, notably Lontano. As its title might indicate, it is a singlemovement sonic landscape woven of “liquid harmonic crystals” emerging from silence and fading away again, at places disturbed by brief, gently eruptive passages. The more rhythmical central part gives the players (in contrast to Ligeti) some freedom in the execution of their patterns; yet, it is a freedom within a strictly conceived overall formal structure...
    Pangaea was commissioned by the international festival Melos-Ethos in Bratislava, Slovakia.
