“Unveiling” for String Orchestra

Unveiling for String Orchestra“Unveiling” written for string orchestra is an exploration of layers of sounds. Beginning with one solitary note, new aural strata gradually unfold in which multiple layers of counterpoint constantly shift, weave, and intersect until the tension is finally broken in an unveiling of a tender and fleeting soundscape. The closing section is a reversal of the opening in which the layers of sound gradually recede until only the opening solitary note remains. In this work I return to my Polish heritage and the listener is likely to hear echoes of string writing of such composers as Grazyna Bacewicz, Romuald Twardowski, or Henryk Górecki.
