Fear of counting forward : for harp, percussion, saxophone quartet / Luke Styles.
by Luke Styles (2014)
Fear of Counting Forward was an unusual and exciting commission both in terms of its instrumentation and brief. The work brings together a saxophone quartet, a wood block and harpist as a soloist, making the work a type of mini harp concerto. The brief was to fuse together medieval plainchant with my own compositional voice. This was a perfect springboard to compose an energetic, soloistic work that could be seen as a set of variations, without ever stating in its original form, the medieval chant on which the entire work is based. The wood block insists on a continual march forward and the saxophone quartet urges harmonic progression beyond the past, but there is always a lurking fear of counting forward.
