Programme Note:
Titled after the mythical birds Halcyons, this composition represents a temporary state of relative tranquility against a background of tension. Composed especially for Lisa Lalev, Ivan Lalev and Jan Grimes, Halcyons was completed in February 2000. The warm melodic cello lines blend with the brighter tones of the oboe and the articulated sounds of the piano creating a mixture of uncertainty, apprehension and genial contentment.
