Programme Note:
Two movements reflecting each other in time. Where one is passive the other is active. The first movement displays 'Yin' characteristics; the idea of recession and passiveness. The second is 'Yang' - active, aggressive. However, each movement contains aspects of the other and a final synthesis is achieved at the end where a text by Gertrude Stein, although written in 1946, seems to speak in the present tense.

The work was commissioned by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. The text 'Reflection on the Atomic Bomb' by Gertrude Stein (1946) is used with the permission of the Estate of Gertrude Stein.

Premiere Information:
June 5, 1989, 5thStream Festival; Aird Centre Recital Hall, Waterloo, Ontario
