RICERCAR DELL’AFFINITÀ flute (2015)

NagyMusic Edition


INSTRUMENTATION Solo Flute

DURATION c. 8 min.

For Tommaso Bisiak

PROGRAM NOTE Characterized by a fantasy-like, rhapsodic narrative, Ricercar dell’affinità (2015) employs several compositional techniques derived from the exploration of the perceptual affinity of tones. The processual musical objects in this fantasy-study are distinguished by harmonies, timbres, and textures, suggesting a musical and procedural affinity produced by gradual transformation of tonal and metric structures. Following a short, improvisatory prologue, the piece unfolds in two contrasting sections: with the first one featuring a two part permutative cyclical counterpoint of rapid and florid gestures, and the second section displaying more melodically and harmonically developed material. PERFORMANCES Jesse Tatum, flute, March 2017. John Donald Robb Composers Symposium. The University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, NM Tommaso Bisiak, flute, May 2016 (world premiere). Risuonanze Festival. Auditorium della Casa della Musica, Trieste, Italy
