Other Minds Festival: OM 8, Concert 1: 07 “Estruturas Gêmeas” by Ricardo Tacuchian Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 27 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: Other Minds Additional Media Files (click to view) “Estruturas Gêmeas” is one in a series of eight "Structures" pieces, unified by the sounds of modern music of this period, such as cluster tones, atonality, indeterminacy, experimentation with new ways of writing, as well as new sounds on conventional instruments. This work, translated as Twin Structures, was premiered in Brazil by Paoulo Affonso de Moura Ferreira and Maria Angelica Ketterer. This work has already been performed in Argentina, Paraguay, the United States, and Spain, and is often performed by Brazilian piano duos. I composed it in memory of Esther Scliar, soon after her death. I decided to place two pianists side by side, as if they were twins, feeling at that moment a spiritual twin of Esther's, myself. In 1987 I transcribed the piece “Imagem Carioca” (Rio de Janeiro's Images), ...
