Product details

A se stesso ('to oneself') consists of very sparse slow-moving vocal textures punctuated by delicate instrumental passages. The words are taken from a poem by Leopardi. The vocal writing emphasises a clear avoidance of ornament of any form, including vibrato. Additionally the harmonic language is strictly constrained throughout.

Published by: Australian Music Centre — 1 facsimile score (53p. -- A3 (portrait))

Difficulty: Advanced — Very exposed parts for voices and instruments; except for the harp, the rhythmic and harmonic language is not difficult.

Commissioned by Flederman with funds provided by Australia Council. Music Board.

First performance by Flederman, Sydney University Chamber Choir, Nicholas Routley — 19 Oct 86. Sydney Opera House

A setting of the poem by Giacomo Leopardi.

This is a handwritten edition — it is not typeset.
