'Piano Quintet' is scored for string quartet and piano. This download includes the score and parts.
Piano Quintet takes ideas of memory and time as its starting point. When, for example, a picture is taken, that moment in time is preserved forever, particularly now in the digital age. This stationary moment can be examined differently at many points in time. Piano Quintet takes an event – the initial opening chord, and the violin duet theme that emerges from it – and examines this in many different ways through transformation and re-imagining of material. Although it is in two movements, there is only one principal idea.
