Untitled (2015)

Fiona Pacey

piano, and string quartet

Program Notes

Untitled for piano and string quartet is a “context in which the [performers participate] in the enactment of the creative process.” (Malcolm Goldstein, 2010 in Word Events: Perspectives on Verbal Notation, Lely, J. and Saunders, J., 2012, The Continuum International Publishing Group, London.) Although it is not entirely a text score, the players are given choices of material to play, based around an idée fixe.
