For Violin & Piano
Nature expresses itself through a balance of order and chaos. Symmetries are the clearest signs that Nature has an underlying order. Symmetries in Nature generate conservation laws. In time, symmetries give us the powerful conservation of energy which is constantly being transformed but never vanishes. Motion through space is a constant transformation of inertia, moment, and spin. These six pieces honor Nature and its mysteries, its language, its dance, and enchantment.
