Description

In his programme note, Hesketh describes a conceit as an extended metaphor which can govern part of or an entire poem thereby leading to a more sophisticated understanding of the subject.   
Within the 20 minute six movement work, Poetic Conceits takes an assortment of thematic material and views it from different angles by continuous manipulation through statement, recall and elaboration. The effect is a continuous arc with movements merging into each other, sharing harmonic material to create focal points for pianistic technique and musicality.
