These six pieces for piano should be performed in fairly low light with a slide projector displaying some of the most famous and revealing of Hubble’s photographs. The various movements interpret these images emotionally and symbolically. The music honours both Bach and Chopin – composers whose music, respectively, is considered the most technically proficient and the most poetic, thus recognizing the incredible technical accomplishment of the Hubble space telescope together with its revealing the poetic majesty of our awesome universe.
