Claude Vivier

Shiraz, 1977

“Shiraz, a city in Iran – a pearl of a city, a roughly cut diamond – inspired me to write a piano piece which is itself cut by an idea: the movements of the hands on the piano keyboard. It is written strictly for four voices, with each hand playing two voices. It develops in various directions, always homophonically, from which a two-voice counterpoint gradually emerges. Then there is a return to abrupt movement, followed by the finale in chorale style.”
