Product details

Acragas is the ancient name for the city of Agrigentum in Sicily, and was the birthplace of Empedocles in 492 BCE. However, the title is only made in honour of the real person and there is no attempt to link the music with anything Greek or Sicilian. Acragas is suite of material that was originally conceived as a part of The Wife of Empedocles project.

The first part is a very slow lamentation and sprang out of reflections on the life of Empedocles preceding his time in Athens.
The second part was designated the Air Fugue in consideration of Empedocles empirical experiments with which it is said that he was able to theorise on the existence and nature of 'air'.

Published by: Australian Music Centre — 1 facsimile score (23p. -- A3 (portrait))

Difficulty: Advanced — Woodwind, brass, percussion and harp are simple. String parts very difficult in the fugue section
