Description

Cheryl Frances-Hoad's The Forgiveness Machine for Piano, Cello and Violin.

'The Forgiveness Machine was commissioned by the Phoenix Piano Trio as part of their Beyond Beethoven Project. My workis very closely modeled on the second movement of Beethoven’s Archduke Trio and comprises a set of loosely structured variations, many of which are motivically very similar to Beethoven's.

This work is dedicated tothe memory of my grandmother, Christina Hoad. I received this commission in the last months of her life, and would often sit in the room listening to the Archduke on my headphones while she rested. Beethoven’s music to meatthat time had an almost transcendental quality to it, temporarily permitting an escape from the reality and inevitability of my Nan’s illness. It was this quality of serenity, beauty and dignity that I tried to emulate inmy work.

The title is taken from an art work by Karen Green: the Forgiveness Machine was made after the death of her husband David Foster Wallace and encourages members of the public to write down on a piece of paper whatthey want to forgive/be forgiven for before feeding it to the machine which sucks up the piece of paper and shreds it (the artwork is some seven foot long). Whilst in my case there is nothing to forgive, it was the feeling ofcatharsis that many people reported after interaction with this artwork that struck a chord with me and had tremendous relevance to this work.' - Cheryl Frances-Hoad
