10 polaroids


(string trio)




ca. 13'






Commissioned by Live Music Now Scotland for the Dohnányi String Trio as part of the 2016 Kimie Composition Prize, funded by the Kimie Trust.

’10 Polaroids’ is a work for string trio in ten short movements, each one based on a different Polaroid photograph taken by the seminal Russian filmmaker, Andrey Tarkovsky. The images were selected from a collection of Tarkovsky’s personal Polaroids, which were curated and edited by Giovanni Chiaramonte and Tarkovsky’s son, published under the title, ‘Instant Light’. A rather fitting summation of the photographs is posed in the introduction to ‘Instant Light’ - “His images seem to capture eternity in a moment.”'
