Sheet Music: Score
treetops/rooftops : for tenor recorder and harp / Tristan Coelho.
by Tristan Coelho (2015)
treetops/rooftops is a piece about searching for, and finding a space for solitude, reflection and calm. The majority of the piece focuses on unrelenting rising musical ideas played in unison by the duo. These frantic lines, like escaping ladders, are explosive and noisy but seem futile. Here, the harp (itself a sort of ladder of stepped notes) and recorder are treated percussively and as one. Out of this, the destination of the piece is finally reached. Here, it is much quieter with perhaps the occasional birdcall, rustle of leaves and the distant hum of the city the only sounds to be heard.
