Des Oiseaux et de la Danse by Peter Rankine

Score

Flute solo, c.3'00
This music falls into two sections. In des Oiseaux, fantastic birdcalls provide the thematic material and something of the dramatic character of the music, while la Danse is a short, ecstatic dance of high energy and constantly changing metres.
Composed 2010, 2nd Ed 2017

From Fire by Fire by Peter Rankine

Score and parts

Quartet for mixed ensemble - flute, violin, horn, cello, c.18'00
The work takes its title from a lyric of Little Gidding, in T.S. Eliot’s Four Quartets. This poem inspired and nourished the composer during the creation of the work. It did this because it speaks eloquently of the creative process itself: tumult; achievement and loss; and mystery. And it did so because the exploration of Time and Eternity is evocative and compelling and seems to address the heart of the mystery of being. To find a musical representation of this interplay and co-existence between “the timeless and time” was a principal inspiration for this work,

Reflèts de la Mer by Peter Rankine

Score

Flute solo, c.5'00
Reflèts (reflections) are manifest in several ways: the piece is in three sections, slow-fast-slow, with material from the first section revisited in the third, thereby creating a rough symmetry about the centre; the principal melodies, especially in the slow movements, are turned more-or-less upside down, in the way of reflections in water (even rippley water such as the sea – la Mer).

Towards the Still Point by Peter Rankine

Score and part

Clarinet and piano, c.9'00
T.S. Eliot’s, Four Quartets – passages of Burnt Norton in particular – inspired the music, which is an exploration of various experiences of time: muscular and corporeal in “The Dance” (Mvt I); “neither from nor towards”, “still yet moving” (Mvt II); and a centring towards “the still point (of the turning world)” – “only through time, time is conquered” (Mvt III).
