Nicola Lefanu: Invisible Places

Books | Chamber Group

Publisher: Novello
Composer: Nicola LeFanu
Format: Sheet Music | Score
This piece lasts about 12 minutes, and it plays continuously, although it is made up of 16 small movements. Throughout, the four string players form a group: sometimes the clarinet is caught up with them, but more often it is like a person pursuing an independent train of thought: sometimes talking to itself, sometimes conversational, sometimes singing

The starting point for my Quintet was Italo Calvino’s Invisible Cities: like the book, my piece is composed from many small contrasting ideas that are constantly transforming, some coming to the fore as others recede. This quintet is dedicated to Hugh Sargent, who commissioned it.
