Karim Al-Zand: Music: Canticle and Caprice


Canticle and Caprice

for string trio

Canticle and Caprice is a short work for string trio in two contrasting sections. In the first, a sustained lyrical melody is played by the violin and viola together, accompanied by plucked notes in the cello. (“Canticle” is from the Latin “canticulum,” meaning “short song.”) The second section, which follows directly, is swift, lively and animated, in a kind of perpetual motion. Canticle and Caprice was written for the Chintimini Music Festival, with grant assistance from New Music USA. The piece is written in memory of Molly Bloomfield, a long-time supporter of the festival and a remarkable woman, beloved for her passionate devotion to the Corvallis community.
