Perpetuum

DE621

There is a study of the possibilities offered by the double bass. The title simply reflects the most obvious feature of the piece; a continuous flow of semiquavers organised around two main thematic ideas. It is remarkable that a persistent idea in harmonic interval gives way to the true perpetuum.

    I wrote Perpetuum in 2004 as a study of the possibilities offered by the double bass, which helped me to get to know the instrument. It was the first piece I had written for the double bass before the Variacions Simfòniques sobre un tema de Henry Eccles (Symphonic variationson a theme by Henry Eccles), which was also published by Clivis Publicacions, both in its symphonic version and in a version for double bass and piano.

    The title simply reflects the most obvious feature of the piece; a continuous flow of semiquavers organised around two main thematic ideas.

    Apart from this constant toing and froing of semiquavers, there is also an idea in harmonics, which appears at both the beginning and end of the piece, and the insistent harmonic interval of thirds leading in to the true perpetuum that also brings the piece to a close.
