Caprice (Hiscocks)

By Wendy Hiscocks

Regular price $18.00 Sale

Violin solo.  Grade: AMEB 8th, c.2'00

The music is composed in three sections; the outer parts flow with the currents of air and a sense of poise and free fall is required of the performer. It is not meant to be strictly in time and must breath with due attention to subtle dynamics but nor is it meant to be unrhythmic with overly fluctuating changes of tempo. The middle section is a dance with plenty of lift and an expression of pure joy.
Composed 1990 rev.1999

Elegy

By Wendy Hiscocks

Regular price $18.00 Sale

Voice and piano, c.2'30".  Grade 7

The Elegy's anonymous poem, sometimes ascribed to the American Makah tribe, was given to the composer after the death of her mother-in-law Trudl Howat in 1993. Trudl's spirit of light and adventure is well reflected in verse, and in setting it to music the composer was able to express her own feelings of thanks and of fond farewell.

The work is inspired by the writings of Rabindranath Tagore and the listener will discern the influence of classical Indian raga from time to time.
