Programme Note
Peter Maxwell Davies Unbroken Circle (1984)
Composed in homage to William Glock, this single movement has something of the character of a slow fugue, on a theme deeply imbued with minor thirds. The woodwinds and strings are considered as pairs, in balance with each other and with the piano.
