Program note

    <p>As the title suggests, <em>Flux</em> is in a perpetual state of transformation. Although there are passing moments of relative stability, the music never finds lasting repose. This surface volatility is balanced by clear trajectories toward registral areas or textural densities that provide continuity and define the work's large-scale structure. <em>Flux</em> also pays homage to <a href="/en/elliott-carter">Elliott Carter</a>'s life and work and includes veiled references to his miniature masterpiece <em><i><a href="/en/works/work/7195/">Enchanted Preludes</a></i></em>.</p><p><em>Jason Eckardt.</em><br /></p>
