Programme Note:
The title of this work comes from the ancient proverb "Gutta cavat lapidem non vi, sed saepe cadendo," which roughly translates as "raindrops hollow stone not through force, but by often falling."! This proverb plays out in the piece on several levels, perhaps most audibly in its opposition of forceful and delicate sounds, but also in the idea of persistence, which is important to each of the three movements in a different way.
“As Rain Hollows Stone” was written for the Wanmu Percussion Trio at the request of Ian Rosenbaum, and is dedicated to Ian, Candy Chiu and John Corkill.
