Composer - Bailey, Judy

So many rivers (NZTrio Commission, premiered April 2010) – 10′

This work endeavours to portray concepts that are both literal and allegorical in nature. The composition begins as it ends, with a calm, almost meditative state, but in between its curves and meanderings we detect the gradual emergence of almost hidden movement – the subtle shifts of mood, the gathering momentum with hints of playfulness, the growing turbulence, the troubled and sometimes tormented complexity that may eventually find its way through to a flowing serenity, and not to forget the ‘passing nod’ that reflects the historical and cultural influence of the various regions that may be encountered on this journey.
