Programme Note:
The term “stability” is often used as music jargon, but equally important here is its more general meaning, identifying an unlikeliness to change, fail, or fall apart. The title does not necessarily mean that there is always a high degree of stability, but simply that the piece explores the phenomenon of what makes things hold together, especially when they just barely hold together. The first half is built in several layers that seem to be rhythmically opposed, but are bound by a common pulse. The second half begins with a thinner texture and serene mood, then grows in intensity as more layers are added. Throughout the work, cyclical elements provide a continuous backdrop against which changes occur.
