MAX DUYKERS wrote End of String for piano four hands and accordion. It’s played by Theresa, Paul and Will. He says this about his work. "End of String" was originally composed for and read by the Stony Brook Symphony Orchestra. It was a bit of a disaster as there are just too many notes and harsh intervals for that kind of a reading, and I realized smaller forces would work much better. The piece is like a single, twisting spine of energy, with bright facets flickering into view throughout. There is a logic to the writing, but the idea is that it just ends when it has completed its own unique motion, or its "string" of content. The first of two sections is presented tonight – the entire piece will be premiered in May. Many thanks to Will, Theresa and Paul for their hard work!
