Cordes Vides for solo harp
Cordes Vides (1990) was commissioned by harpist Erica Goodman through the Ontario Arts Council. It is included in Ms Goodman's CD, Erica Goodman Plays Canadian Harp Music (BIS CD-649), which won a Juno Award for best Classical Album in 1994.
The piece is like an imaginary folkdance evoking the open harmonies of the violin. The dance gradually dissolves into scales played with varying speeds and colours. Cordes Vides is dedicated to Erica Goodman.
