Notes on this piece
Add to a playlist

This is a hocket-driven piece based on Guillaume de Machaut's rondeau Ma fin est mon commencement. It might be described as a form of palimpsest: the eight sections in which it is divided correspond to the eight parts that structure Machaut's work (and, by extension, the typical rondeau as a medieval chanson form). Each section is the result of a different process of filtering by which some of the pitches from Ma fin… are removed while others remain intact. This allows the deployment of melodic and harmonic patterns that remain virtually hidden within the original.

The title refers both to the classical double as a variation form, and to the fact that each performer acts as a shadow-self for the other.
