On a Misty Horizon:
Originally composed for Flute and Harp and arranged by Machajdik for Cello and Harp for this release in 2011.
Nell’autunno del suo abbraccio insonne:
Composed for and dedicated to Floraleda Sacchi in 2004. A great new piece of Harp repertoire.
Machajdik often chooses to compose his works in solitary places.
His compositions draw on several sources of inspiration, especially from the polyphony and modal harmonies of early music. In recent years Machajdik’s works have been typified by both economy of material and stringency of method, thereby demonstrating that what may be simple musical language can nevertheless be powerful. Also elements such as controlled use of dissonance, sustained sonorities, inconspicuous melodic motion and frequent use of minor tonalities apply to Machajdík´s compositional style. Most of his compositions have a meditative character.
