Cantabile – A Touch of Jazz in a Classical Setting

Something for a happy Friday: Cantabile (in Italian “singable”, or “song-like”) should unfold through long and eloquent phrases, but it does not have enough courage to immediately convey what hides in its heart. It is full of hesitation and uncertainty. How do we express fragile, undefinable emotions in a loud and cynical world? The secret of strength sometimes lies in tenderness. As the movement progresses, individual phrases gain shape and begin to form a bold message through a colorful harmonic progression of jazzy quartal sonorities.
