‘Diferencias’ for violin solo (2002)

In Program Notes on February 28, 2011 at 12:29 am

In an ideal world, unaccompanied works are found soaring above the ground where no one could tread without support, it is an inimitable isolation.
Whenever listening to Bach’s for violin or cello suites, I can’t help but form such an image in my mind.
The isolation also brings an absolute freedom for there is nothing to restrain a person.

‘Diferencias’– This work begins with stillness, then oscillates between violent shakes and more stillness, developing and varying its figure as it progresses.
In conclusion, at the summit of perpetual motion, an improvisation that lasts no longer than one minute is played.
