first page

Metis was one of the Titans, a daughter of Oceanus and Tethys; therefore, she was considered an Oceanid. She was the first wife of Zeus, and became the goddess of wisdom, prudence and deep thought – it is therefore fitting, that for this piece, the ancient Greek Dorian Mode was used; the favourite mode of the great philosopher Plato himself!

The ancient Greek Dorian mode was the equivalent intervals as E-E on the white notes of the piano & was misnamed the ‘Phrygian’ mode in the Middle Ages.
