Piano Quintet

Bryn Harrison

Piano Quintet has been performed in Huddersfield, Montréal and Toronto…

The late American composer and theorist Jonathan Kramer said that the present is not simply the place where perception happens but “is also the meeting ground for memory and anticipation, both of which colour our perception.” My piece draws on a world of vanishings, recollections, apprehensions and remembrances through the pervasive use of cyclical repetition. Memory is presented here not as a sight for nostalgia but as a vehicle for issuing forth what is to become. The piece was commissioned and first performed by Philip Thomas and the Bozzini Quartet. The project was made possible through generous funds provided by the University of Huddersfield.
