Product details

Transition for two strings is a duo for violin and double bass that explores the upper and lower sonic extremes of the string family. The piece was conceived as a fraught dialogue between two instruments that are trying to shout out to each other across a large 'registral canyon' that stretches between them. Thus the emptiness of the middle register 'void' is as much a part of the piece as the notes that are played. As the piece progresses, each transition into a new section or technique, ie from arco to pizzicato to sul ponticello, brings hope to each instrument that it will connect and be heard by the other.

Published by: Australian Music Centre — 1 facsimile score (7p. -- A4 (portrait))

Difficulty: Advanced

Duration: 4 mins

Dedication note: Transition for two strings is dedicated to my brother Stuart, who has been through a number of transitions in his life, and always hopes to be heard.

As this piece was composed as a dialogue between the two instruments, both players should have a copy of the full score, so that they can see how their part interacts with the other instrument. Therefore, if you are planning to perform this work, you need to purchase 2 copies of the score.

Typeset edition.
