'Fa' - Jeroen Speak - Serendipity fields

From Music Alive, 8:30 pm on 3 February 2017

Composer Jeroen Speak says that his work 'Serendipity fields' is "a reworking of several earlier works, though recomposed for this new ensemble. The guzheng and its ancient predecessor gu qin, have interested me ever since my first visits to China, and many of my works from this period use ideas generated from the guzheng. The title alludes to the many overlaps between the guzheng and the first works I composed, particularly on the gestural level, which enable these instruments to work together seamlessly. "
