  • May 18, 2011 Beautiful, fragile work

    This is an 18-minute work that creates an atmosphere of quiet resonance. The pacing of the piece is quite slow and never moves faster than eight notes. Sharman uses harmonics in very open passages and leaves plenty of space to properly execute them. The work never exceeds the piano...

    dynamic marking (very few uses of accents as well) and goes down to ppp. His use of long sustains notes calls to memory the vibraphone writing of his teacher, Morton Feldman. He also studied with Brian Ferneyhough which is evident through his use of complex rhythms.
