Product details

The work is in two movements, the first being linearly conceived while the second is primarily harmonic. Chromatalea means colour series and the slow monody of the first movement allows the changes of timbre and articulation to be clearly heard. Perhaps because of the absence of harmony and repetition of melodic or rhythmic motives, quite a lot of tension is built up.

In the second movement neither the pitches nor the colour changes which each instrument uses are ordered serially. Nevertheless this is twelve-tone music. Four chords or phrases recur several times within a stream of ongoing thoughts which they interrupt or bring to a halt, thereby increasing the feeling of conflict.

Published by: Australian Music Centre — 1 facsimile score (28p. -- A3 (portrait))

Difficulty: Medium to advanced: special requirements to produce timbres.
