Dok mislim na tebe (Whilst Thinking of You), a work for piano and string orchestra, was commissioned by Saša Mirković, violist and artistic director of Ensemble Metamorphosis. It was premièred at their 2016 concert titled Hymns and Prayers at the Stu-dents’ Cultural Centre in Belgrade.
The piece was conceived in terms of two musical flows running in parallel: original thematic contents and transformed quotations of Scarlatti’s D-minor Piano Sonata K213 (L108). Metaphorically speaking, it constitutes a dichotomy between the traditional and modern, real and astral, old and new… The musical flow of the piece unfolds with no explicit dramatic conflict, fore-grounding the lyrical and meditative introjections of piano and string sounds. The work comprises six segments. The final segment features a synchronous exposition of the three main original thematic materials that were presented in the preceding sections.
