Encountering Lorca is one of several pieces inspired by the light and dark poetic shadings of Garcia Federico Lorca. This is the first in a set of four pieces that can be played as a group or in subsets. This one has a sunny, laid-back feeling.
Much as Lorca’s themes reappear throughout the body of his work, a single phrase weaves throughout the four movements – a rising fourth moving up by half step, back again, then continuing down to the half step below, and the one below that. I had composed it as a student and have developed it through this composition.
