Description

Sextet was commissioned in 1992 by the group Array Music, Toronto. It is a piece in which the moments of change between sections are as important as the musical content - rather like those points in paintings where objects or areas of colour meet. Like other works by Barry it is complex, with fresh material appearing at the end, opening up new territory as the music concludes. The composer has said that much of it reminds him of sea side resorts from childhood.show more
