Quoniam Si Reprehenderit Nos Cor (2014)
for clavichord and guqin
Quoniam Si Reprehenderit Nos Cor was written in 2014 when living in Hong Kong, studying the guqin with Yong Hak-chi of the Rongshi Jiazu. I had long been wanting to couple the guqin with the clavichord; despite originating in such different cultural environments, they share a similar pathos.
I believe this is the first piece written for this combination of instruments.
The clavichord was tuned to Pythagorean tuning.
