Hinge was originally composed in 1995 at the request of pianist Douglas Finch for the Continuum Ensemble in London, England. In the piece, various instrumental groupings and musical materials are juxtaposed and alternated, flipping back and forth as if connected by a hinge. The piano part often takes on a solo role, frequently in the company of percussion. The piece exists in two different versions, the original created scored for solo piano, flute/piccolo, oboe/english horn, bass clarinet, percussion, harp, violin, viola and cello; and a second version created for the Vancouver New Music Ensemble in 1996 with an instrumentation of solo piano, flute/piccolo, oboe/english horn, bass clarinet, percussion, violin, cello and bass.”
