About This Work

Composer:  Kevin Cope 

Description: Kuitra attempts to utilize the modes of the Middle East in a unique manner. By creating a jazz influenced harmonic scheme, the piece begins by creating the illusion of a major tonality. This does not last for long, though, and it quickly becomes apparent that there is a darkness to it as well. While the first section drifts through luscious melodies, the second section contains a more frantic element. This section begins with a long melody sustained in the upper voice and an ostinato created with a succession of slurs to open strings. This is broken up by tense moments of chordal strumming with a simultaneous rapidly moving bass line. With a return to the first section, the piece comes to a drifting and dark end.
