Vainness/Futility (2015)

Feeling of futility reveals the worldliness of our life. Accompanied by a lack of impulse to move forward, it entails a state of stupor and plunges consciousness into a deep, cold sleep. The musical idea, conceived under the influence of futility, doesn’t have the moment of birth.

“Futility” for clarinet, violin, cello and piano was created in 2015 for the project of the St. Petersburg MolOt-ensemble “Quiet Music”. The premiere was held on November 22, 2015 in the framework of the festival “Sound Ways” (St. Petersburg).
