Nozart : for two horns in F
by Jenny Game-Lopata (2012)
Score SampleView a sample of the score of this work
Nozart is losely based on an the Arab maqam (or mode) Saba as well as the iqa or rhythmic mode Sama'i Thaqil (3 + 2 + 2 + 3). Using this material as a starting point, Nozart explores Western devices such as the canon. Characteristics such as the ostinato, which are common to Western as well as Arab musical traditions help to provide a link between the two.
