Instrumentation: viola and piano
Splintered Refrains explores perpetual transition as well as short yet constant flow of form. The music thrives under the auspices of suggestive but stilted melodic fragments – an abstraction of a narrative of sorts. The work can stand-alone or act as a segued bridge into another composition, Roadside Picnic for two pianos.
