Mirrors of Light

for piano solo
by Rosemary Duxbury

Piano compositions by British composer Rosemary Duxbury. “Mirrors of Light 1” and “Mirrors of Light 2” are featured on the new CD of the same name. A concert of this new music is available to book via Charasound. Please email music@charasound.com for more details. Here is an extract of a concert that took place at Gloucester Cathedral, England:

“Mirrors of Light 1”

Rosemary writes, “In recent years of writing, I knew I had opened up to a greater exploration of my own consciousness. It’s an ongoing journey and this time it felt I was traveling through ‘space’ showing me new areas waiting to be explored. Following this, Mirrors of light began to emerge. As is usual with my work, I perceive light informing the structure. I could sense mirrors involved as if light was being projected into space so that I could see something beyond.”

Mirrors of light 1  is a piano sonata with 3 movements, played continuously.

“Mirrors of Light 2”

This single movement work is a companion piece to Mirrors of light 1, and draws on the same inspiration. Its World Premiere was given by Patricia Siffert in 2011 at the Reitstadl Kulturhaus in Neumarkt, Germany, as part of an exciting new artistic collaboration between artists of three nations: Patricia performed alongside projection of Annette Horn’s photographic images and a newly choreographed dance by German ballet dancer Oliver Essigmann.

The Wo
rld Premiere of “Mirrors of Light 1” and British Premiere of “Mirrors of Light 2” took place on Friday 22nd June 2012, at the Fraser Noble Hall, Leicester, UK, followed by a repeat performance in the Chapter House, Gloucester Cathedral on Saturday 23rd June 2012.
