Description

Concerning EPHEMERON the composer offers the following comment: "My concern was with vanishing characters which find life through, by, and as rhythm. They are gradually separated into movements contrasted by the type of measure applied – even measure, irregular, as well as their combinations. Separation is also applied by orchestra color. The even measured character is brought to its culmination by the winds and percussion reiterating a harshly attacked sound. The arrival points thus formed lead to a synthesis of the total orchestral mass. These advents are the least ephemeral and most substantially durable sound areas in the work. To me, this composition is a fleeting vision of music as form."
