The sheet music for Vasiliy Antipov's composition "Poem"

Vasiliy Antipov: Poem 

Vasily Antipov's poem is written in a structurally complex form that the author himself has referred to as an 'integrated form.' The seed of this poem, from which the further musical fabric grows, is a complex consisting of a short motif and the accompanying harmony. This complex evolves as the composition develops, taking on characteristics of various forms, including canon and fugue. The process of dynamic material evolution is the central principle of this piece's composition. Technically, to perform it, it is necessary to use the thumb of the left hand, similar to how cellists do. 

The author's fingering is marked within the composition's text. You can listen to the composition being performed by the author in the attached video below.
