The piece is part of four original Trans-solos derived from the quartet Transitions, for violin, clarinet, cello and piano, written in 2000 following a commission by pianist Margie Wu and the “eppur si muove” Foundation in Zürich. “I have extracted and re-visited the four solos as single musical moments written for the virtuosity of a distinct performer. As the word ‘Trans’ may suggest, I have considered virtuosity as a search for ever-changing perceptions of the ineffable,” says John.
