Auftauchen der Nacht by Peter Mcnamara

Score

Orchestral, c.11- 12 mins
This linear structure begins with murky material, as the light of dusk can be when Night has not fully fallen. Clearer material and musical layers, including melodic lines in the oboes and clarinets as well as a rhythmically driven bass line in the bassoons, tuba and contrabasses, replace this murkiness gradually. Quartertones appear incorporated into Harmonic Fields as the work progresses. These are placed on top of each other during the middle section with mostly Brass emphasising one while mostly Strings and Woodwinds the other. These accumulate in intensity to a climactic point.

Die Nacht kommt by Peter Mcnamara

score

This piece is part of a trio of works that use similar musical elements to emphasise various representations of Night. Die Nacht kommt conveys imagery of a Hazy and Foggy Night and achieves this through blurred voicing and "out-of-phase" melodic lines and quartertonal scales. Artificial string harmonics and resonant metallic percussion opens the work accompanied at first by Violas and later Oboes and muted Trumpets. c. 9-10 mins. Grade - professional

Duo-Charged (cello) by Peter Mcnamara

score and part

Violoncello and piano, c.5'10
This short piece in three movements is very intense and 'charged'. First movement is very rhythmically strict, the second is unmeasured and free while the third movement sees a gradual return to the rigid and intense material of the first.  Originally written for violin in 2006, arr. 2009

Exhibited Symmetry by Peter Mcnamara

Score

Solo piano, c.5'00
The work's title is indicative of its various symmetrical pitch patterns.  Structurally it focuses on contrasting "time-space" notated sections that have no rhythm, with very rhythmically strict sections. Overall this technique is used to create faster and faster tempi culminating with the fastest of these at the climax.  The finale uses this process in reverse.

General's Garden, The by Peter Mcnamara

Score and part

Baritone and piano c.10.00'
The lyrics are taken from extracts of letters from General Sir John Monash written while he was on active duty at Gallipoli. After such intensive fighting his letters home were filled with longing for his former life and in particular his garden. A solemn and introspective song in 'lieder' tradition but includes more modern techniques.  Winner of the Gallipoli Songs Prize in 2015.  Composed 2014.

German Hills, The by Peter Mcnamara

Score and parts

Clarinet in Bb, percussion, violin and cello, c.10.00'
Commissioned for Ensemble Offspring as part of the Sibelius Awards 'Emerging Composer' commission and represents the "Adelaide Hills" district in South Australia. This area has a very distinct German/Australian quality, due to the many Prussian immigrants that settled in the area after escaping political uncertainty and discrimination during the 1830s. To represent this German/Australian fusion, the work's pitch material is based on a 9-note motif from Beethoven's Kakadu Variations Op. 121a.
