Programme Notes
Sringara is an Indian 'rasa' or flavour or mood signifying a love-essence, love between man and woman or mother and child. The chaconne consists of four gentle chords. They rise slowly through many transformations. There are more objective events that repeat - like the chaconne - but they crop up almost randomly. This 13-14 minute work is commissioned by, and dedicated to, Lorraine Vaillancourt and her Nouvel Ensemble Moderne, with whom I have happily worked; it is to wish them Happy 20th Birthday.
