Work introduction

Everything in the piece Orbita is derived from three bars of Haydn’s Emperor Quartet. The harmony and rhythm are at times so distorted so that it might seem unrecognisable. But the piece is on an eccentric orbit around the Haydn, sometimes very close to it, at other times seemingly very distant. The gravity of Haydn’s music is such that my piece can never fully escape it.
