Elizabeth Maconchy Colloquy (1979)
Colloquy

COLLOQUY was commissioned by Ingrid Culliford ans Shellagh Sutherland with funds provided by the Arts Council of Great Britain. They gave the first performance on 2 June 1979 at Wigmore Hall, London. It is in four concise movements. The first is forthright with rather angular themes, but with a brief lyrical section, echoed at the close. A fleeting Scherzo follows:at the centre point it turns momentarily into a dreamlike walz, overheard as it were from the distance. The slow movement is improvisatory in character. The finale is a rigorous and lively affair, interrupted only by a reminiscence of the lyrical idea from the first movement.
