About

Purity emerged from the idea that a single note can hold as much beauty as an orchestra. I wanted to capture the expectancy of the present moment, waiting for events to slowly unfold while the outcome is yet􏰁 unwritten. I appreciate the honesty of octaves and fifths in communicating beauty. Sometimes all that is needed is simplicity.


Difficulty note

Suitable for a competent school quartet to a professional group.
