MARGIN for bass clarinet, viola d'amore and accordion (2015)

v.2015-05-04


Pedro Alvarez MARGIN (2015) for bass clarinet, viola d'amore and accordion

Programme Notes: “Margin” was conceived as a footnote to a work yet to be written. Premiere: 06 June 2015 in London, UK, by Heather Roche, Marco Fusi and Rafał Łuc.

PERFORMANCE NOTES: Bass Clarinet Two different approaches to the notation of multiphonics have been used: Bars 1-10, in which the exact pitches to be achieved are indicated, and the fingerings given; and bars 28-33, where the embouchure must be gradually modified to obtain a more complex multiphonic sound from the notated low C, to which alterations of the fingering are added in round noteheads, indicating the keys to be opened at specific rhythmic points. In this second type, the exact pitch content is not as important as the general sound quality. Viola d'Amore Main strings' tuning (sympathetics' ad lib.):

Duration: ca. 1 min. Transposed Score
