Andante lirico No 12 - (2021)   

for organ


As both another study in extending a single (0r very few chord structures into longer events) and for the sheer enjoyment of playing out an idea in the "minimalist" strategy for composing, this 3 minute work uses the tonic major with an added minor sixth, as neither a progression or succession in the sense of Schoenberg's distinction, but as the foundation for the entire work. The arpeggio in the left hand moves between imversions at times, but the harmony is static. The bass line's impact seems to add some structure harmonically, and over this a simple inverted melodic arch as top voice plays out.
