Along with Lidia Stankulova (harp) and Irena Mitevska Mileva (flute) Christopher J. Cameron gave the first performance of The Landscape Listens at the Gallery XVA in the Al Fahadi District in Dubai, 12th March 2013.
Sadly, Chris passed away at the end of October 2021. This piece is dedicated to his memory.
Hidden Reflection forms part of an ongoing series of pieces that use ‘found objects’ as the core material: in this case, Franz Schubert’s Ellens dritter Gesang, (D. 839, Opus 52, No. 6), written in 1825. This piece is better known to audiences as Schubert’s Ave Maria.
Hidden Reflection focuses on the harmonic material in the accompaniament of the original rather than the melody, which remains hidden.
Recorded at Centre for Musical Arts, Dubai, UAE 13th April 2017
