SYNTAGM III

(1970)

Commissioned by Fondation Maeght syntagm III premiered at Fondation Maeght, Saint-Paul-de-Vence, France, 20 July 1970 Ensemble: Domaine Musical Conductor: Lukas Foss

Program Note Score (transposed) Instrumentation

SYNTAGM III is an extension of my early graphic,

improvisational scores such as SYNERGY I and DECEMBER 1952 [both from FOLIO (1954)] in combination

Flute

with aspects of open form (TWENTY-FIVE PAGES (1953))

Bass Clarinet

and more recent scores such as SYNERGY II in which I have combined all of these “experimental” scoring

Piano / Celeste

and performance techniques. SYNTAGM III is a further

Harp

attempt to create relevant and responsible aspects of my

Vibraphone

function as a composer and an optimistic attitude toward

Marimba

performance spontaneity . . . a kind of “programmed environment” of composer-performance collaboration.

Violin

This is very close to the definition of “synergy” as

Violoncello

I worked with the concept in 1952. Recent developments are encouraging, finally.

Duration: approximately 12 minutes

Accidentals apply only to the notes they directly preceed.
