07: GREENSLEEVES VARIATIONS

(John Wilcox, violin / Walter Mony, viola) • Rollin transforms this perennial favorite into a kaleidoscopic salmagundi of contrapuntal effects, witticisms, innovative technical gestures and quasi baroque phrases, which are transmutated into rare elements by chromaticisms and weird and wonderful harmonies. The time weaves in and out between the two instruments and provides a stimulating challenge of identification for the listener amidst the camouflage.
