INSPIRED BY DOUBT
INSPIRED BY DOUBT by Hugh Levick An absurdist and metaphysical confrontation between forces of disorder, INSPIRED BY DOUBT is aggressive, lyrical, explosive and barely audible in turns and enacts a fragmented, gestural drama. From great pitch leaps to darkening speed to slapping the piano with slack hands, the music is incessantly seeking ‘a way out’. Requiring a pianist of tremendous technique and great vision (Yevgeniy Milyavskiy), INSPIRED BY DOUBT rarely ends up where it seems to be going.
PRAYER performed by Tereza Stanislav
PRAYER by Hugh Levick Performed by Tereza Stanislav Program Notes: PRAYER, duo for silences and solo violin was NOT the original title of this piece. The original title was WRECHO which to my mind indicated the echo of a wreckage. Without changing the music I changed the title since I felt that the visceral and disjointed quality of the piece was an adequately fervent expression of my hopes for the beautiful and shredded world in which we live.
