Product Description

The composition of Metamorphosis for chamber orchestra began in the Fall of 1985 and was completed in February of 1986 when the composer was just 26. The piece also became the composers Masters thesis from Rutgers University and hence the culminating work from that period. This video represents a newly revised edition of the piece done in 2022. Every effort was made to maintain the original intention of the piece. Metamorphosis represents a brief early period in the composers output where a more dissonant harmonic language was used or where the tonality becomes quite ambiguous. In the opening bars for instance, one hears a suggestion of the Scriabin mystic chord which also loosely serves as the basis of the piece.. A brief "hat-tipping" moment is where a few bars of the Ravel string quartet is paraphrased (listen for it!). The work then travels through various cycles and episodes and only hints at the chord along the way.
