Broken Canons

(
2011
)
Composer: Malcolm Goldstein
For an unspecified instrumental ensemble (5 parts, or maximum 10 instruments)

Broken Canons is a reflection and an extension of the piece The Cage by Charles Ives. The canons, which unfold in the form of tonal melodic lines derived from the original piece and then modified, are shaped by the musicians and gradually form harmonic masses of sound.
