Viola

   

B-A-C-HOMAGE, for viola & piano, work based on permutations of the chromatic motive of BACH’s name (the BACH motif)
Duration: c8:00
Commissioned by Unkyoung Kim.
[ACA - American Composers Alliance]

 

2007

Composer's note: As I worked on the various pitch orders of the chromatic motive of BACH’s name (“H” being B flat in German), I noticed that the retrograde inversion is identical to the original pattern intervallically, only transposed a half step higher. How like the rounded, circular music of this man! His ever-recurring themes move through time and space in fresh and ingenious paths, saying all there is to say and no more, no less.

Flute

   

Sans Souci Suite, for Baroque flute & percussion
Duration: 8:00
Commissioned by Susan Lowenkron

 

1996

The Baroque flute was championed by Johann Joachim Quantz, in the employ of Frederick the Great at Sans Souci (and Rheinsberg). Borrowing musical ‘affectations’ from his time, as well as musical quotes from his own compositions, this work also contains variations on a theme given to J.S. Bach by the King, when the venerable composer visited Sans Souci.

   

(b 1938)
