Litha Efthymiou

Present Shadows

Flute, clarinet (bass clarinet), piano, violoncello, double bass

Duration, c.13'

This piece is inspired by Old Hispanic liturgical chant, preserved within manuscripts dating from as early as the eleventh century. It aims to convey a sense of stasis, which the melismatic structure of the original melodies evokes, and does so through the employment of cyclical devices, a slowly transforming harmonic backbone, and the establishment of central points of focus, forcing the music to continually return to the opening material.
