Šmite, Gundega: Mercurium 

 

 

Basic information

 

Notes

  • Program notes: 

    Gundega Smite “Mercurium” for piano solo.

    The composition has been inspired by the two meanings of the word Mercury; as a planet and as a chemical element. Mercury is the closest planet to the Sun, therefore it is the warmest one. As a chemical element Mercury or quicksilver is a liquid type metal that can move in unpredictable directions.

    Interestingly enough: the planet Mercury’s orbital period around the Sun is 88 days and a piano has exactly 88 keys.
