Sheet Music: Score
Dark chair, op. 47c : for soprano, mezzo-soprano, vibraphone, bass clarinet, double bass / Andrew Schultz.
by Andrew Schultz (2013)
Dark Chair, Opus 47 c (2013)
This is a new version of Silk (from 1993) composed for Halcyon. The work is a setting of a short Chinese erotic text in English. In this version, soprano and mezzosoprano are used rather than two sopranos. In the process of reworking Silk for these voices the piece took on a new persona - largely because it is now lower in pitch than when for two sopranos. The piece has been given a new name, Dark Chair, that seems to suit the lower, darker and more mellow quality of the new version of the piece. There are various changes to the work from its original version but it is the same as Silk in terms of scoring for two voices plus three instruments and the duration.
