Gellman, Steven
Deux TapisseriesComposer: Gellman, Steven
Performance date: November 19, 1980

Date composed: 1978

The second is more dramatic and contains numerous abrupt changes and flashes of color. They are called “tapestries” because the music is “woven” with musical elements that run through the pieces.
