Work introduction

Quaerendo invenietis – Music for Orchestra V, for string orchestra, transforms the royal musical motive from Bach’s Musical Offering and quotes Bach’s inscription for the canons: quaerendo invenietis “…seek and ye shall find…”. ഀ

Slowed down by a hundred times, Schwartz lets the motive unfold, gliding all the while, until massive clusters materialize.
