Premier performance of Canon #46 “Palladium” with the wonderful Matthew McConnell on harpsichord. A new exploration of the idea of vertical shifting counterpoint as first described by theorist and composer Sergei Taneyev (1856-1915). Part 1 is an initial statement of the canon with imitation at the octave. Part 2 is a reprise with the top voice transposed up a semitone while remaining consonant with the bass (imitation is now at the minor ninth). Part 3 is a reprise with a shifting interval of imitation.
