Notes

  • Program notes: 

    Adieu is a short movement for orchestra. It draws on three musical and three temporal levels, each of which is represented by one musical element/parameter: a lengthy melody, rhythmic pulsation and gradual formation of chords. Each of these elements is fitted in its own “meter”. Due to an autonomous flow of the musical material at these levels, together with its articulation through the groups of instruments in the orchestra, the elements contribute to a slower pace of the composition’s time flow. I wanted to create an illusion under which it would seem that the remaining time and musical material have disappeared.“

    In 2007 the piece was given The Stjepan Šulek Award, performed by Croatian Radio and Television Symphony Orchestra (conductor Nikša Bareza).
