Besnilo Details

Besnilo (2019)

for violin, and piano

‘Besnilo’ is a fast paced piece of music that operates with additive time signatures.  The word ‘Besnilo,’ from Macedonian translates to ‘furious,’ or, ‘furiously.’ Rhythmically furious, the melody follows a trajectory that operates with a smooth quality, creating a contrast to the driving rhythm.  Interjections of compound meters appear in the middle of the composition to create a momentary unbalance, a ripple in the fast flowing rhythm, yet, the drive continues and modulates several times to further diversify the melodic and harmonic elements.
