«Made of Hot Glass» (2003)
Commissioned by the NYYD Festival and the artistic director of Ensemble Voces Musicales, Risto Joost.

Molten glass – flexible, as if alive. Born of opaque sand, it gradually changes shape and colour, grows in the hands of glass-blower and, achieving its peculiar form, becomes more transparent. Eventually it cools down and becomes fragile. Then it can be broken into pieces, but its form can be altered no more.

 

    “Tatjana Kozlova’s calligraphic style manifests itself more and more distinctly: through the quasi-polyphonic treatment of texture, the freshness of timbres and sound combinations, and the elegant exploitation of extreme moves. In view of her grounding in composition and the teachers she received it from, her music appears slightly Tulev-esque and Tulve-like, yet at the same time it sounds inspired, open and devised with care.”

Ia Remmel, music critic, on the premiere of Tatjana Kozlova’s Made of Hot Glass (Sirp, 24 October 2003).

 

 


Her piece Made of Hot Glass for chamber orchestra is presented by Estonian Radio at the UNESCO’s International Rostrum of Composers in Paris in 2004 in the category of composers under 30.
