Palinode for Five Instruments


From the Publisher

Three moods appear in turn on different instruments: (decorative flute, violent clarinet and piano and lyrical violin and ’cello). Interrupting each other then combining, they create a chaotic climax before collapsing into calm. Then they exchange instruments (the violin becomes decorative, flute and cello violent and the clarinet and piano lyrical) and start all over again…
