Bruno Vlahek: Studio I /2009/
performed by Jeremy So, piano
Written for the "Momentary pleasures" project
World New Music Days 2010
ABC Centre Ultimo Sydney, Australia
"The „momentary pleasure“ of this short virtuoso piano study has been found in an idea of creating a work based completely on chromatic scale idiom. However, this idea has been elaborated only as a compositional principle and a general sounding effect of the piece doesn't show that always in a too obvious manner. From outbound F sharp sound which is constantly repeated throughout the piece as a bell-effect, the chromatic line is coherently carried out through different textures, spacings, colors and characters."
