COVER (1996/1998) - Belinda Reynolds
for flute, cello, and piano
Commissioned by Continuum Contemporary Music;
Premiered February, 1997 - Toronto, Ontario
COVER was written in the Fall and Winter of 1996 as part of a commission by Continuum Contemporary Music. The work gets its title from the way the opening material interacts with the other two musical statements throughout the piece: it enshrouds, overlays, even masks its presence with the other two main musical statements. Nevertheless, its inherent rhythms and harmonies make up the basic structure of the entire work. Special thanks goes to Isobel Rolston and the Banff Centre for the Arts for their support of this project. Other thanks also goes to Jennifer Waring, Paul Widner, and Rosemary Thomson of Continuum for their input during the composing of this work.
