    Efthymiou, Litha
    This piece is a poetic representation of the ice formation Diamond Dust. Its light, ponderous beginning utilises the guitar’s delicate timbral qualities, while the second, more aggressive section, gives rise to a more percussive texture, depicting the full gamut of qualities that constitutes this elusive state of ice. States of Ice Diamond Dust was commissioned by the International Guitar Foundation (IGF) for their 2011 festival. It is published by Edition HH.

  11. Moments held

    Efthymiou, Litha
    Old Hispanic chant (from c.500-1080) is preserved today in un-pitched notation. In the last 5 years, scholars on the ERC funded Old Hispanic Office Project at the university of Bristol have unravelled some of the key musical features of this elusive repertory. At the forefront of their discoveries is the way in which melisma was used to affect perception of time passing. The composition ‘Moments Held’ for orchestra is a modern, secular, response to the temporal properties of Old Hispanic melisma. It uses devices that attempt to reinforce and develop a sense of stasis in its harmonic landscape and in...
