Friends of Distinction is a suite of three movements, each of which is inspired by an existing keyboard work. “German Monoliths” was commissioned by Stephen de Pledge as part of a series of companion movements to Bach’s Partita (BWV 827), intended in some way to replace Bach's intricate architecture with a landscape of structures wildly varied in shape and dimension. “Souvenir” is a short interlude whose point of departure is the spectacular Scarlatti G-major Sonata (K.455). “Fades” was commissioned by Katherine Dowling, and is a spiky, spontaneous response to “Wie aus die Ferne” from Schumann’s Davidsbündlertanze.
Commissioned by Stephen de Pledge ("German Monoliths") and Katherine Dowling ("Fades")
