The six short movements were inspired by gestures from Schubert’s Moment Musicaux, though not until the last movement is there an actual quote. The gestures become transformed into Fine’s music, which sounds unselfconscious in its free use of dissonance and vigorous in its frequent changes in rhythmic groupings.
“…jewels waiting for recitalists to wake up to their presence.”
