38. Apollo’s Muse, 3.01

Apollo’s Muse (comp. June 2012) is a short piano piece that mellifluously wanders through a modal inflections. The gentle 6/8 time of this waltz rocks a long twisting lullaby across a bed of arpeggiating left hand idiomatic accompaniment while the right hand of soars high above playing broken octaves and sixths.  A mysterious haze of arpeggios and lyrical non-diatonic notes help to create a mystical and haunting somber tone poem.
