Sacred Prelude, Op.1

By Jonathan Little

Regular price $55.00 Sale

String quintet. A natural rubato is felt throughout this haunting, single-movement, chamber work. Its much darker than usual instrumentation sees two violas and two cellos set against only one violin (which sometimes, like a single voice, soars high above the texture). The sound is reminiscent of that of ancient church music. c.10'00

Recorded on "Masterworks of the New Era" Vol.10 (ERM 6812) Soloists of the Czech Philharmonic / Robert Ian Winstin (see: www.amazon.com)

Sacred Prelude, Op.15

By Jonathan David Little

Regular price $55.00 Sale

Stile Antico,  for string orchestra. A natural rubato is felt throughout this haunting, single-movement work for string orchestra. The sound is reminiscent of that of ancient church music. Written in the stile antico, it opens with a “Plainsong”, then comes the main central “Anthem”. There is a brief reprise of the opening theme, before the work closes with a more emphatic “Fantasia” (where the sense of rubato becomes almost improvisatory). The work, as a whole, may be said to comprise a poignant “prayer” for strings. c.11'00
Arranged by Anthony Weeden in collaboration with the composer.

Terpsichore, Op.7

By Jonathan Little

Regular price $150.00 Sale

For large orchestra. "The Whirler" or Muse of Dance. Evocation of the seventh of the nine muses, Poeme de danse. c.14 to 15 mins
The precocious Muse begins her wild, whirling dance;
Entrancing Terpsichore dazzles all those who behold her:
A most majestic and dramatic solo performer; 
The beguiling Muse slows and strikes a pose;
Her frenzied dance resumes;
The Muse displays her hypnotic, swaying gracefulness;
She pauses one last time;
Her recollection of past glories, and homage to the ancient circular dances;
The capricious Terpisichore's Finale!
