Product details

Here and Now was commissioned by Julian Burnside AO QC and especially composed for 'low flutes' specialist and director of Monash University Flute Ensemble Peter Sheridan (Melbourne, Australia). The work - a concerto featuring alto flute, bass flute, contrabass flute and subcontrabass flute, as well as an electroacoustic 'tape' element consisting of hyperbass flute melodic samples (not to mention a secondary biphonic soundscape framing a bass flute cadenza and featuring the juxtaposition of contrabass, subcontrabass and hyperbass flute low Cs) - represents a Hommage à Ernst Krenek (1900-1991) and serves as an exploration of Krenek's twelve-tone modality as presented in Lamentatio Jeremiae prophetae, Op. 43 (1942) within the utilization of two contrasting scales: Minor Bitonal Scale (C, Db, Eb, F#, G and A) and Major Bitonal Scale (C, Db, E, F#, G and Bb). The abovementioned scales are categorized by Masaya Yamaguchi in The Complete Thesaurus of Musical Scales (2006) as 6-30Sa and 6-30MSa (with the vectors 224223 and 224223 respectively) and form part of his '80 Six-Note Subsets in 35 Vectors'. A series of twelve 6-note chords (constructed from transformations derived from the two bitonal scales) provide all the melodic and harmonic materials of each movement - this series essentially acting as a 'chaconne' (variation on a repeated short harmonic progression) in the second movement.
