Master of Music
This piece for chamber orchestra explores the superimposition of musical fragments upon others of different metrical values. The title of the piece refers to the closing section in which three different musical ideas of three conflicting underlying metrical values run simultaneously to produce an effect similar to the "clockwork of the universe". These three fragments are explored first separately in the exposition. Each is given development both individually and alongside others. The final section of the piece combines all three simultaneously in their original forms.
