Ether Game

Structurally Sound

Ether Game asks: can you name this tune? This conclusion is a magnificent entry!

This selection is based on an architectural design for a great European city. Although the structure was never constructed, it’s magnitude on paper inspired this closing movement of a larger work. The artist was a close friend of the composer and the work from which this piece is taken was dedicated to him.
