Tarik O’Regan THE PURE GOOD OF THEORY (2004) for solo violin and orchestra

Full score

NOVELLO


The Pure Good of Theory For Martyn Brabbins and the BBC Symphony Orchestra The Pure Good of Theory was first performed by The BBC Symphony Orchestra conducted by Martyn Brabbins at Studio 1, BBC Maida Vale, 29 January 2002 Duration:

circa 11 minutes Instrumentation 2 Flutes (2 = Piccolo) 2 Oboes 2 Clarinets (2 = Bass Clarinet) 2 Bassoons 2 Horns 1 Trumpet 1 Trombone Timpani Percussion (2 players) Harp Celeste Strings Notes This composition takes for its title that of the poem of the same name by Wallace Stevens from his 1947 collection Transport to Summer. The time of the composition’s poem, a typically nonsensical work, coincides with the revelations about Nazi mass-extermination and the ensuing judicial process for war-crimes at Nuremberg. Remembering that during this period the word ‘transport’ had acquired some especially terrible resonances and also the fact that the end of the second section contains the words ‘He was a Jew from Europe or might have been’, The Pure Good of Theory becomes an exceptional poem in Wallace’s oeuvre with its references to political machinations.
