Sheet Music: Score
From one to many / Haydn Reeder.
by Haydn Reeder (1981)
In musical terms the title refers to the long note on the clarinet which begins the piece, above which the flute builds a chord. Juxtaposed with the initial long notes are evocative piano sounds which are taken up, developed and moved by the wind instruments into more complex areas, hence the 'many' in the title. Perhaps the title could also be interpreted naively as meaning that the work emanates from one person and is transmitted to others. (This is of course not true - a composer's ideas are influenced by other creators.)
My intention was to produce an imaginative and inventive piece which includes ideas ranging from immediately transformed contrapuntal gestures to a section displaying a mechanistic approach, all the while exploiting the different colours of the instruments and/or the viruosity of the performers.
