Mahlerian grief

Continuing the theme of love, I want to try something really tragic. Thinking a lot of Karen Armstrong's use of the Priam and Achilles example, and the aching pain of human emotion associated with loss, I've had a go at doing something Mahlerian. Perhaps not as tragic as I would have wanted  (just had a really nice weekend with family!), some elements are there. The chromatic colouring and dissonances tug at the body, with brief moments of consonance to regulate (they reduce variety). Heaven and earth again; public and personal. It's in the zone of oscillation.
