Toccata by Peteris Vasks (1946-). For 2 pianos. This edition: ED 9578. Piano Music. Grade 4. Composed 1977. 23 pages. Duration 5 minutes. Published by Schott Music (SD.49033177). ISBN 9790001134385. Abwechselnd stellen die zwei Klaviere das Bassmotiv vor. Jeder neue Anlauf bringt eine Steigerung des Tempos. Doch erst das Zusammenspiel entfesselt das eigentliche Vivace. Von nun an sind es nur noch die largamente-Abschnitte und ein lyrischer Mittelteil (cantabile), die der forteilenden Bassfigur vorubergehend Einhalt gebieten. Wie ein Perpetuum mobile dreht sich das Motiv durch den Fortgang der Toccata, sorgt fur immer komplexere Schichtungen in der Satzstruktur. Der lettische Komponist Peteris Vasks hat sich selbst auf Grund seiner geographischen und kulturellen Herkunft als Musiker der Peripherie bezeichnet. Dass er mit seiner Musik voll emotionaler Stringenz immer wieder ins Zentrum zeitgenossischen Musikschaffens vorstosst, belegen gerade auch seine kammermusikalischen Instrumentalwerke.

Partita by Heinz Holliger (1939-2002). For piano. This edition: ED 9459. Piano Music. Grade 6. Composed 1999. Duration 35 minutes. Published by Schott Music (SD.49008422). ISBN 9790001131940. Heinz Holliger hat sich intensiv mit Friedrich Holderlin und Robert Schumann beschaftigt. Dem dritten Satz seiner Partita, einer Barcarole, stellt er ein Motto voran: "Uns wiegen lassen, wie | Auf schwankem Kahne der See". Diese Zeilen sind dem Holderlingedicht "Mnemosyne" (Gedachtnis) entnommen. Das Stuck beginnt im Rhythmus der alten Gondellieder. Zeitweise verliert es aber den ihm eigenen stetigen Fluss der Musik und verfallt in Sprachahnlichkeit. Der vierte und sechste Satz sind mit "Sphynxen fur Sch." uberschrieben, was an die Bezeichnung "Sphinxes" erinnert, die Schumann in seinem Carnaval fur die Umsetzung seines Namens in Tone verwendete. Satz II "Fuga" rekurriert auf Schumanns Fugen fur Pedalflugel. Exakt in der Mitte erscheint die Chiffre BACH, eine Transposition aus Schumanns op. 60. Deutlich ist erkennbar, wie Holliger sich mit seiner Partita auf einen geschichtlichen Hintergrund bezieht, ihn vielfaltig schichtet und gliedert. Komponiert fur das Bachjahr 2000, hat Holliger hier in Form und Kabbalistik nicht allein dem Leipziger Thomaskantor seine Referenz erwiesen. Auch die so gegensatzlichen Bach-Anschauungen Schumanns und Liszts sind eingewoben. Ein gleichermassen pianistisch wie musikalisch anspruchsvolles Konzertstuck.

Un Dia de Noviembre (for solo marimba). By Leo Brouwer (1939-). Arranged by Jason Baker. Marimba solo. For low E marimba (1 player). Concert Percussion Solos. Originally written for solo guitar, Un Dia de Noviembre is a marimba transcription of a very popular piece by Cuban composer Leo Brouwer. By way of natural chord voicings and intuitive playing patterns, Jason Baker has done a masterful job of capturing th. Medium. Score. 8 pages. Duration 5'00". Published by Tapspace Publications (TA.TSPCS-09). Originally written for solo guitar, Un Dia de Noviembre is a marimba transcription of a very popular piece by Cuban composer Leo Brouwer. It's performed with four mallets on a 4.5 (low E) octave marimba. This piece has a lyrical and simplistic beauty which will require a mature sense of musical phrasing from the performer. The accompaniment alternates between the right and left hands throughout and occasionally requires one-handed rolls from each hand at different points. By way of natural chord voicings and intuitive playing patterns, Jason Baker has done a masterful job of capturing the heart of the original work through the marimba's expressive range.

Valentine by Fred Hersch. For Piano. Modern. Sheet Music. Composed 2001. Duration circa 2.5 minutes. Published by Edition Peters (PE.P68328). ISBN 979-0-3007-5763-6. Modern. Valentine' was composed on Valentine's Day in 2001 at The MacDowell Colony in Peterborough, NH. At the time, I was writing jazz tunes with the aid of a kitchen timer, and this was completed in sketch form in about 20 minutes. I then fashioned a lead sheet and began playing the piece in concerts, usually as an encore. It received a Grammy nomination for Best Instrumental Composition in 2008. As I performed the piece, my interpretations became more consistent - even though there is a free improvisatory introduction and improvisation after the melody and before the recapitulation (both of them written out here in abbreviated form). I have had many requests from non-improvising pianists for a piano arrangement, so I created this arrangement in 2010. - Fred Hersch A pianist and composer whose work has received nearly universal acclaim in a career spanning over 25 years, Fred Hersch is among the foremost creative musicians in the world today. Described as "a master who plays it his way" by The New York Times, Hersch has released more than twenty albums as a solo artist or bandleader, two of which were nominated for Grammy awards for Best Jazz Instrumental Performance. He was the recipient of a 2003 Guggenheim Fellowship in composition and has received grants from both The National Endowment for the Arts and Meet the Composer as well as commissions from The Doris Duke Foundation and the Irwin S. Gilmore Foundation, among many others. He has also been awarded five composition residencies at The MacDowell Colony in Peterborough, NH, and a Rockefeller Fellowship for a residency at the Bellagio Center and Foundation in Lake Como, Italy. He has collaborated with an extraordinary range of major artists in both the jazz and classical worlds, including Joe Henderson, Stan Getz, Charlie Haden, Gary Burton, Dawn Upshaw, Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg, Jeffrey Kahane, Christopher O'Riley, Renee Fleming, and dozens of others.

Four Christmas Carols, Op. 77 by Giles Swayne. For SATB, Piano Accompaniment (SATB). Music Sales America. Christmas, 20th Century, Choral. 22 pages. Novello & Co Ltd. #NOV050204. Published by Novello & Co Ltd. (HL.14011721). ISBN 1846091837. Christmas, 20th Century, Choral. 6.75x10 inches. Four Christmas carols that capture the distinctive, contradictory and unmistakable choral style of Giles Swayne. Always plain-speaking, challenging, intense and emotionally honest, Swayne's music also brims with wit, melody and a sly playfulness that is both captivating and addictive. “The Four Christmas Carols” were written over several years. The first three are for unison voices with Piano, and can be performed by the whole assembly. The fourth requires a larger SATB chorus, and is a larger, expressive and impressive setting of “The Coventry Carol.” This set of carols has it all –from grand unison melodies, familiar tunes and rousing choruses to more poignant, challenging and unusual passages. It represents a hugely satisfying and entertaining addition to any festive performance or carol concert.
