Piano Quintet

Linda Catlin Smith

Piano Quintet has been performed in Huddersfield…

In this piano quintet, the piano and the strings seem to inhabit different musical worlds. The strings start off in a mesh or haze of independent lines, while the piano offers quiet, solid chords, like sparse figures appearing in a fog. Just when the piano gradually pulls the strings into its chordal world, it abandons chords for a sparse single note line, as though finding a new language; the piano and strings never quite meet exactly, but coexist independently. The work is continuation of my deep interest in exploring harmony.
