Program Notes

Netzer’s meshulashim (Hebrew for ‘triangles’) is a hushed yet colorful series of vignettes that use triadic harmonies, melodic contours, and crescendos to explore various ways of representing triangles in music. Her piece moves in a palindromic arc where smaller gestures soon overlap, creating one large pyramid of sound. After reaching its peak, the music slowly dwindles and Sharrock’s sensitive playing of widely spaced triads led to a breathtaking finish and lasting silence. Quiet hums of approval were heard in the audience.
