Detail

Description

Palindromes was composed at the Rockefeller Foundation
Study Center in Bellagio, Italy, for the new-music ensemble Aequalis. As one
might suspect from the title, the idea of "reversible" passages and
processes is an important feature of Palindromes. In fact, the work's
14-minute duration is subdivided into two large sections, and these in turn
into smaller units, all of which operate in "palindromic" ways with
respect to one another. None of this need be apparent to listeners, and the
works's surface is simply that of a recital piece, alternately virtuosic and
lyrical. The premiere of Palindromes took place at the 1989 Bowdoin
Summer Music Festival, and there have been subsequent performances in New York
and London.
