Programme Note
Nico Muhly Compare Notes (2012)
Compare Notes begins with a large canon between the violin and the left hand of the piano in slightly awkward rhythmic shapes, and then dissolves into a more playful traditional canon. All of this simplifies enormously into a sort of chorale with a drone, taking advantage of the open A-string of the violin. The violin then wiggles its way out of this drone material, re-introducing the opening material. Jeffrey Kahane and Daniel Hope can play anything, so I wanted to give them something rhythmic to chew on. N.M.
