Programme Note

Since I composed Crystalline for solo piano in 1988, I have desired to project the image of crystals in sounds and space. Crystalline II (1995-96), as well as 'Hommage en cristal' (1991) and 'Metallic Crystal' (1994-95) are linked to this earlier piece in which a glassy, solid, yet transparent sound suggests cold, crystal sound sculptures.
