This miniature was written for The New York Miniaturist Ensemble, who are “dedicated to performing music written with purity of essence – composed of 100 notes or fewer.” Dohyci is kind of musical koan, and the real fun of writing it was coming to terms with my own definition of a “note”. Subsequently, this might not be your idea of 100 notes. Depends on how you count it.
