Hammer & wind
chamber music of Leonard Enns

Leonard Enns
Leonard Enns
Composition Date: 2007


Instrumentation Set Number 1:
  • 1 x Variable Ensemble
Programme Note:
Hammer and wind is pulse and breath, heart and spirit. Pedantically, of course, the disk title evokes the percussive piano and breathing voice - in this case either the human voice or that of the saxophone - but that parsing really doesn't stand up well, since roles are often blurred, exchanged, or shared. Best to leave it at hammer and wind, the two dynamics that both carry and are our life, as long as pulse beats and breath moves.
