Claude meets K. (2012)

for solo piano


This short piece overlaps a filtered version of "Capricorn" (the last of the twelve melodies in Tierkreis, by Karlheinz Stockhausen), which is treated in the manner of a lipogram, with the main motive of the prelude Des pas sur la neige by Claude Debussy. The result is the musical metaphor of an imaginary meeting.

The 'Stockhausen' layer of this work is quoted in Tres versiones de Capricornio (2013).
