Programme Note

The word colimaçon is French for the spiral form of a snail’s shell and is most commonly found in the form, escalier en colimaçon, meaning a spiral staircase. Having first come across the expression in the work of Jacques Prévert, the word obviously remained in my subconscious and I was reminded of its meaning when composing this piece for David, in its circular form.
