Minimum Vs. Maximum represents the music quite literally. These two words (minimum and maximum) have multiple meaning. The minimum, in reference to this composition, can mean both minimal content and minimal development, whilst at the same time representing the overall timbre and colour of the piece itself. On the other hand, the maximum can mean maximum mood, atmosphere, colour and expression. I have tried to achieve all of these contradicting descriptions in order to portray a very controversial sound within the ensemble. The Piano plays the most minimal ideas throughout, which usually consist of a number of repeated patterns whilst the �Cello has the job of contradicting it all be trying to increase the intensity by playing very intricate and sometimes lush melodies, which are constantly weaving in and out of the Piano patterns, the point being to try and distract the listener from the relentless repeated phrases heard form the Piano. The whole piece is intended to sound seamless, thus, the pattern changes throughout are very subtle. The piece starts with the maximum of force and speed and the character at this point is extremely aggressive, but by the end, the momentum and drive that is so dominant at the beginning has diminished completely, and we are only left with very light chords played by the Piano which are complimented by a series of very moody sustained notes from the Cello.
