From the composer:
Sarabande was written in 2009 for Matt Haimovitz. By turns stark, desolate, enraged and mournful, it is not a work for the faint of heart. Sarabande owes its pulse and backbone to the traditional dance rhythm—the second beat of three emphasized over the first, the third often whispering or absent—and exists as a memorial for one lost too early and too inexplicably.
Commission/Dedication: To Matt Haimovitz.
Premiere: First performed February 1, 2009 at the Winnipeg New Music Festival by Matt Haimovitz.
Recording: This work is recorded on Oxingale Records’ album Figment and PENTATONE Oxingale Series’ Orbit. Click here for the smart URL for all listening options.
