Notes

  • Program notes: 

    At the first turning of the third stair
    Was a slotted window bellied like the figs's fruit
    And beyond the hawthorn blossom and a pasture scene
    The broadbacked figure drest in blue and green…
    (Eliot, Ash Wednesday)

    The title of this composition points to a turn, a change in the direction of movement. The turn is thought out melodically, as a change in the direction of chromatic and quarter-tone motion, and harmonically, as a permutation of the chosen tone sequence. The basic sequence of tones and the number of chromatic tone pitches in the sequence before and after the reversal point is determined by the Fibonacci sequence (1-2-3-5-8-13-21). Of course, this very sequence determines the entire form of the composition. Regarding its musical content, it gradually shapes and dissolves music, with quarter-tone shifts into harmony and back into a murmur, and is associated with the quotation from Eliot’s poem.
