Projection, 1978

Commissioned by: Purcell String Quartet and Joseph Macerollo, with the assistance of the Canada Council


Projection is in one movement comprised of four sections. In the first, the accordion and the quartet do not actually play together, but alternate, each playing its own ideas and at its own tempo. The second section is a mosaic of different ideas – all ‘arabesque’ in nature. The accordion and the string quartet become more integrated during this section. The third section is an extended accordion cadenza, built from material of previous sections. It shows off the virtuoso aspect of the accordion, building to a large climax and leading back into a thickly textured chordal section for the quartet with superimposed melodic flourishes played by the accordion. The final section is a scherzo in which there is a rhythmic, playful atmosphere.”
