MUTAZIONI, for piano
In these studies for piano the term “mutation” (mutazione) refers not so much to the musical material itself, but to the perception that this process activates in the listener. The possibilities of mutation are explored through the repetition of well recognizable figures, which undergo changes sometimes evident, sometimes hidden. The form of the studies arises from the activated mutation processes, with some external elements that momentarily interrupt the flow by varying its development.
