Product details

Anyway, as I was saying, (and have said elsewhere) … "rhythms, bowing patterns, physicality, counting and mathematics, communicative skills etc, all ultimately merge, one happy day, as 'consciousness' in, and as, the 'well tempered string player'".

To teach young kids to do so, however, (particularly the counting bit, let alone looking at the conductor) is another matter altogether! What greater challenge to humanity, and service to despairing string teachers, (and youth orchestra conductors) than to devise means by which to 'encourage' them to do so. With that in mind, here then is an offering which, in its recourse to basic principles, (and in a language that is in accord with the principles of an almost contemporary cultural hip-ness!) can serve, in some small measure, to learning to participate consciously in that great mystery of collective social meaning and action; -that is, music making, during a period of rapid cultural change; -or simply put, "In Times of Change".

Published by: Australian Music Centre — 1 facsimile score (23p. -- B4 (portrait))

Difficulty: Medium — Changing time signatures in Allegro and 'Post-script' movements. Technically not that difficult, (3rd grade AMEB standard at most) but requires focused reading and counting skills

Duration: 9 mins, 45 sec.

Contents note:

Introduction (freely) -- Andante -- Poco Allegro -- Post Script -poco andante.

Commissioned by Sydney Youth Orchestra.

First performance 2007. Sydney Conservatorium of Music

Includes performance notes.

The composer notes:
A bit of 'contemporary' (spacey 'col legno' free taps) in opening Adagio, punchy rhythmic groove in the allegro, with an almost folk fiddle section with open string/fifths idea, and subtle melodic counterpoint. Concludes with a short, anthemic quasi-march.

Revised in 2011 and in 2018.

Typeset edition.

This edition produced 2018.
