Product details

Calling Music was composed in 1991-92 for The Hunter Orchestra with financial assistance from an Australia Council Composer Fellowship. The work is dedicated to Roland Peelman, the orchestra's musical director.

The beautiful trio, "Soave sia il vento," from Mozart's opera, Cosi fan tutte, forms a starting - or rather, an ending - point for Calling Music. The text of that short piece is as follows: "Gentle be the breeze, calm be the waves, and every element smile in favour on their wish." My piece makes a number of references to that tender part of the opera and the earlier cries of farewell: "Addio! Addio! Addio!."

A 'contrafactum' is a vocal composition in which the original text is replaced by a new one; in this case the music is borrowed but without the voices - creating an absence or a gap.
