Metamorphosis I-V, features piano transcriptions of pieces written in 1988. Two of them, Nos. 3 and 4, were composed as incidental music for a play based on Kafka's novel The Metamorphosis (Die Verwandlung); Nos. 1, 2 and 5 derive from the soundtrack to Errol Morris' The Thin Blue Line. Although assembled in this manner the work could seem like an opportunistic patchwork, the cycle has the ability on the concert stage to stop time and let us enter a new realm of perceptions.
