Notes

  • Program notes: 

    Mosaic is not as much inspired by the art technique as with the idea of mosaic as a puzzle that I experienced while composing this piece because of its formal structure. The main idea of this composition revolves around the pulsating rhythm which appears at the beginning in piano and cello parts and creates the dramatics of the composition. By the time the composition comes to its middle part, this rhythm changes, slows down and in combination with other elements present it takes on a different melodic path expressed by cello and continued by other instruments. The composition itself consists of many short parts that are different in character, as a whole resulting in broad spectrum of colours and emotions. Towards the end of the piece the pulsating rhythm, similar to the rhythm from the beginning, appears again and gradually slows down creating a calm atmosphere for its finish.
