Echorus

1995

7′

Music by Philip Glass

CAST:
Two solo violins and string orchestra (2 vln, va, vc, db)

COMMISSION:
Written for Edna Mitchell and Yehudi Menuhin

NOTES:
Echorus (derived from the word echo), was composed in the winter of 1994-95 for Edna Michell and Yehudi Menuhin. The piece is in A-B-A form and appears as a chaconne. The soloists either play the chaconne or melodic parts suggested by the harmonic structure. The music is inspired by thoughts of compassion and is meant to evoke feelings of serenity and peace.
