Another Chance | violin, cello & piano | 9'

Another Chance (2018) is a musical exploration of the creative (and composing) process: putting down an idea; obsessing over it; revising it; second-guessing

and re-writing it.

 

Within this piece and—one hopes—in the act of creating, we ultimately find ourselves in a state of flow, where we're free to boldly explore new concepts without judging them too harshly. Another Chance narrates this passage from timid self-doubt to bold, self-assured declarations.

 

This piece was written for and is dedicated to the Neave Trio, who premiered the work in September 2018. Read a review of the premiere performance here
