Mixed ensemble

From Fire by Fire

By Peter Rankine

Regular price $41.00 Sale

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.
Composed 1989, 2nd Ed 2017

Grotesque - Operina

By Meta Overman

Regular price $47.00 Sale

A one act operina (very small opera) for soprano, clarinet (or flute), four hands piano and dancer. 

The score also includes a CD of the chamber works and a DVD of the first performance held at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music on 2nd April 2019 (also linked here).

Grotesque
is a tragic comedy with quite an absurd plot involving an old man – the character played by the clarinettist, a young girl, sung by the soprano and a ghost whose antics are created by the sounds of the piano. Its structure is theme and variations as in the original version for piano four hands and the plot is described by a narrator. It is a little questionable whether in a performance that is staged the narrator is really necessary. In fact there is no mention of a narrator on the original score though when recording the work a narrator could be deemed necessary to outline the antics of the characters who cannot be seen. In a staged version the characters create the images and the “narration” on the score can be viewed as merely stage directions. The dancer would therefore act out the antics of the ghost and the instrumentalists would become the characters described by the stage directions.   Composed 1951 rev. 1961

    Party Pieces

    By David Henderson

    Regular price $21.00 Sale

    Five pieces for Viola, Clarinet in Bb and piano, c.10'20

    The children arrive at the party to the strains of a Pavan. At the party the children dance passionately to many tunes, represented here by a Tango followed by a Jazzy Waltz.  But when night time approaches it is time to send the children off to bed to the sound of a toy soldier March. Tucked up in bed at last, the children soon fall asleep as the sounds of a gentle Lullaby permeate the evening air.
