“Sky in Motion” by Arthur Breur


Arthur Breur talks about his piece: “Composed for and dedicated to my composer friend, Sepehr Keyhani. I first named the piece “In Motion” because of the left hand elements, and added “Sky” to the title because “Sepehr” means “Sky”, so it seemed appropriate. The feel is very movie score, and once I knew that the piece was going to have that feel, I ran with it–even “finishing” the composition by adding a solo intro line that (in a movie) would be played over the last two clever spoken lines from the two protagonists. Note: The “S-E-P-E-H-R” motif (E-E-B-E-A-D)appears 42 times in the piece, not including partial or modified appearances. ”
