Panah : for orchestra
by Clare Maclean (2007)
Score SampleView a sample of the score of this work
Panah takes as its starting point the sound of several Russian bells, and musically explores the different partials within these sounds; much of the music is made up of fragments which appear and recur. The music aims to express a sense of the numinous that bell sounds can create, a sense of an appearing of divine glory hidden in the world. Panah is a Hebrew word which means to turn, to show one's face, to appear.
Instrumentation: 2 flutes (2nd doubling piccolo), 2 oboes, 2 clarinets in B flat, 2 bassoons, 4 horns in F, 2 trumpets in B flat, 2 trombones, bass trombone, tuba, timpani, percussion (1 player), harp, strings (18.104.22.168.2).
Duration: 8 min.
