Work list
Estudio en dos Dimensiones (1989)
for violoncello solo
The basic idea of this piece is to position opposing musical elements side by side, allowing them to be interpreted as contrasting (e.g. tone - noise, cycle - anti-cycle, homophony - polyphony etc…) These various dimensions and their relationship to each other are continuously redefined in the five parts of this piece. It is important however, that each plays a leading roll in one of the parts.
