Abstract

This work was initially conceived in reaction to a commission from Royal Liverpool Philharmonic (RLPO) concert pianist Ian Buckle for The Pixels Ensemble on the premise that ‘it would be good if the music could refer to the techniques of Olivier Messiaen and be suitable for a Remembrance Centenary recital featuring Quatuor pour la fin du temps (Quartet for the End of Time)’. The Palindrome Triptychs is a series of three works in three movements. Each triptych is approximately nine minutes in length and composed for the same instrumentation (violin, clarinet, violoncello and percussion). The scores pay homage to the palindromic techniques of Messiaen in the macro-design of the series as a whole and through the micro distribution of form, rhythm and pitch organisation in each of the three triptychs: A triptych of triptychs. The Palindrome Triptychs explore mirror reflections of rhythm and contour through palindromic forms within palindromic forms (Matroyshka Form) from the micro to the macro via pitch organisation also conceived from the micro to the macro: palindromes within palindromes and combinatorial cells within combinatorial rows. This work was premiered by The Pixels Ensemble in a Remembrance Centenary Recital in The Great Hall, Liverpool Hope University November 2017.
