Programme Notes

One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Márquez is one of the great pieces of literature of the 20th Century, and a personal favourite of mine. The way in which Márquez chronicles and intertwines the lives of seven generations of the Buendía family really is quite amazing. This miniature composition is made up of 7 measures representing each of the 7 generations. The similarity in tone from bar to bar symbolizes the bloodline but subtle variation in bass and melody show the gradual changes that happen over time.
