for piano

James Tenney
James Tenney
Composition Date: 2003
Genre: Keyboard, Piano, One Keyboard, Two Hands


Instrumentation Set Number 1:
  • 1 x Piano
Programme Note:
Waves for Eve, wave upon wave, little waves on bigger waves, et cetera, but precisely calibrated to peak at the phi-point of the golden ratio. To weave: a three-voice polyphonic texture in dissonant counterpoint, with a respectful nod in the direction of Carl Ruggles and Ruth Crawford Seeger. And finally, a meditation on the wondrous physicality and inescapable spirituality of all our music-making.
Commissioned by: Eve Egoyan with the assistance of the Canada Council for the Arts

Premiere Information:
March 2003 Glenn Gould Studio Toronto, ON Eve Egoyan
