Programme Notes

I have always been intrigued by the gritty rumble of the low register of a piano. It is a completely different character than the bright (and sometimes sweet) nature of the upper register. In Piano Piece No. 2, I explore the vulgar side of the piano. The irregular metres and the barbaric tone combine to explore the fine line between structured chaos and musical anarchy.

– Frank Horvat

Poetry Inspired by Piano Piece No. 2

by Imre Attila János Torma – 2016

Chain Linked and Ordered

Concretize my frenzy,
chain linked by the pecking order,
of urbana.
I live in the city
Envied by the world all over
To what clear end?
