Brightside by Frank Millward

Score and parts

Five pieces from the full work for Soprano and Baritone, Choir and Chamber Orchestra
 
In Brightside a poem, written to a pre-prepared scenario, was interpreted using music, song, dialogue and movement. Synthersising these so that no one form dominates another, Brightside develops themes of blind optimism, obstructive cynicism and misguided treachery. This work was originally performed by Lumiere and Son Theatre Company London.
 
The score presented here is a re-orchestration of the original score that was performed as an electro-acoustic piece, disseminated through an immersive quadraphonic system. This re-orchestration is ideally suited to an acoustic concert presentational format and works well in accompanying a solo or small ensemble dance component.
 
Approximately 18’00” in duration there are five major sections scored for Choir (or Quartet with microphones) S.A.T.B. and Chamber Orchestra consisting of Violin 1, Violin 2, Viola, ‘Cello, Double Bass, Trumpet Bb, Horn in F, Bass Trombone, Keys and Percussion.
 
The sections of the work are
1.     No One Knows How Fine They Are – Duration 4’ 32”
2.     Ella – Duration 3’ 46”
3.     Your Will Never Waivers – Duration 3’ 30”
4.     All I Want – Duration 2’ 00”
5.     Stella – Duration 3’ 36”
 
There are opportunities for solo parts in Ella (Soprano) and in All I Want (Baritone), however these can also be sung by combined ensemble voices. The poem ‘Pale fingers…’ by David Gale is a part of the full poem of the work and can be spoken to fit within the section Ella. It is offered as a performance choice if spoken word were to be included in the performance.

Dining with Alice by Frank Millward

Score and parts PDF

Dining With Alice Suite  - the complete production available as PDF on disc.
For Soloists, Choir and Chamber Orchestra

This work is ideally suited to being presented in a concert format, approximately thirty minutes in duration – not including the String Quintets. If the performance is staged as a concert the String Quintets would aptly be played as pre-concert or interval music.

The music presented here has been taken from the 2011 Artichoke production and comes from that section of the work which took place as a concert performance in an outdoor setting ‘grounds of a 15th-century moated manor house’ performed by the eight characters (Queen of Hearts, Red Queen, White Queen, the Duchess, King of Hearts, White Knight, Mad Hatter, Tweedle (Dum Dee), a choir of waiters and a Chamber Orchestra consisting of Violin 1, Violin 2, Viola, ‘Cello, Double Bass, Trumpet Bb, Horn in F, Bass Trombone, Keys, Percussion.

‘Dining with Alice was one of the earliest instances of immersive (where spectators are part of the action), site-specific (the place is part of the subject) theatre. It was a landmark.’ First performed in 1999 at the Salisbury Festival, the piece was conceived and directed by Hillary Westlake and staged in the Victorian pleasure gardens of Salisbury as part of the Salisbury Festival, commissioned by the then festival director Helen Marriage.  In 2011 the work was part of the Norfolk and Norwich festival, produced by Artichoke, transplanted to the beautiful grounds of a 15th-century moated manor house. ‘Lewis Carroll's characters unleashed from Alice's dream, wandering through a landscape accompanied by an audience whose walk is punctuated by the courses of a meal.’ (Quotations from Susannah Clapp - Observer Newspaper U.K. 15 May 2011).

The entire suite is available on a CD disc.
