Emergence

By John Peterson

Regular price $75.00 Sale

Flute sextet, c.7'00
The title of this work reflects the manner in which the music in each section gradually unfolds and ‘emerges’ from small embryonic ideas and cells of musical material. There is also a subtle suggestion of the word ‘emergency’, or perhaps in this case more correctly of ‘emerging urgency’ which, in the context of the work, reflects the fast paced energy and rhythmic momentum that dominates the music in the first and final sections.
Emergence was the winning entry in the Australian Flute Festival Composition Competition 2015. It was first performed by Melissa Doecke (piccolo), Lauren Gorman (flute1), Georgia Williams (flute 2), Michaud Munday (flute 3), David Shaw (alto flute), and Peter Sheridan (bass flute), conducted by Elisabeth Hobbs, at School of Music, Australian National University, Canberra, on 4 October, 2015. 
Composed 2015

In the second movement, Cerberus, being a more noble beast with three heads working together in order to become a much more efficient and fearful creature.  Commissioned by David Rowdon and the Sydney Omega Ensemble.  Composed 2012
