About the work
Stillicide…? I recently stumbled across this curious word and have yet to find anyone else who already knows its definition. Might it refer to ‘death by non-motion’, ‘the motion of a drop of water’, or something else entirely…? The piece was commissioned for the Chamber Music Exchange by Thalia Myers
Apart from the piano having three staves to play from in the second movement, and 1/4 bars which should be repeated several times, the piece is straightforward.
