Performance Notes 1. The score is notated in C. Accidentals hold through the bar in the register in which they first occur. 2. In the second movement, the flutist, clarinetist, violinist, and ‘cellist play crotales, suspended with a string from their music stands (if the swing is too great, the crotales may be held on their stands). The flutist plays G and D, the clarinetist concert Bb, the violinist D and C as indicated, and the cellist, Eb and Ab as indicated. Crotales sound one octave higher than the notated pitch. It is important that the octave be correct. In addition, all six musicians are asked to make various body percussion sounds, specifically, to snap fingers, and to slide their feet to make a shuffling sound. The latter may be enriched acoustically with small pieces of aluminum foil or paper placed beneath the shoes. This should be visually unobtrusive and not prove a side-show. In addition, as the effect is contrapuntal, a sonic tapestry, the musicians' snaps and shuffles should be more or less matched (see m. 49-55, e.g).

Program Note Light Dances is a three-movement chamber concerto composed in 2009-10. The work takes its title from Brian Peterson’s phrase “my whole creative life is a dance around the light.” These are not dances per se. Instead the movements reflect dance and light in different ways. The music is of widely varying emotional scope, departing in one movement from the lightness of dance, and from spiritual light in another. Peterson’s phrase captures the creative dance. And the rhythmic body. Steps, the first movement, features a kind of lightish dance rhythm exuberantly proposed by the upper instruments, and answered with rough rock beats by the piano. These transform in due course; there is an electric energy coursing throughout, like Whitman’s celebration of Electric Body, referenced in Brian’s recent photographs. The second movement, Incipit, opens up a different space. It takes flight from Thomas Tallis' choral setting of the Lamentations of Jeremiah, whose first word gave me the title ("Incipit lamentationem Ieremiae…”). More than borrowing the text, or very much of Tallis’ music, this movement invokes the falling melodic fourth, outlining the lament mode which was the basis of Tallis' somber and humble music. Incipit’s sonic tapestry features the non-percussionists playing crotales, snapping fingers, and shuffling. Spatially, it reminds me of the solemnity of light flowing into a sacred space (“the whole thing becomes a prayer”). A dance around the light uses the basic melodic interval--again, the perfect fourth--of the first and second movements and weaves it into textures wherein groups of instruments dance with one another. Near the end, a jangling and persistent drone is introduced, a ringing which in idle moments is quite loud; a dance with a silent partner, “the sound of the raindrops dripping from the eaves outside my window.” Light Dances lasts roughly 23 minutes and was commissioned by Network for New Music, Philadelphia.

The flutist plays G and D, the clarinetist concert Bb, the violin D and C as indicated, and the cellist, Eb and Ab as indicated. The crotales should be stuck with a brass beater and allowed to resonate freely. See Prefatory Note. * * Or Japanese Temple Bell
