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.

Comedy Overture by John Ireland (1879-1962). For Concert Band (Piccolo, 1st Flute, 2nd Flute, 1st Oboe, 2nd Oboe*, 1st Bb Clarinet, 2nd Bb Clarinet, 3rd Bb Clarinet, Eb Alto Clarinet*, Bb Bass Clarinet, 1st Bassoon, 2nd Bassoon*, 1st Eb Alto Saxophone, 2nd Eb Alto Saxophone, Bb Tenor Saxophone, Eb Baritone Saxophone*). Band Music. Grade 5. Score and parts. Duration 10:30. Published by C. Alan Publications (CN.R10004). Originally composed for Brass Band in 1934 "Comedy Overture" is, despite its name, a serious piece of writing. The term Overture does not imply that there is anything else to follow; it is used in the 19th century sense of Concert Overture (like Mendelssohn's "Fingal's Cave" - in other words, a miniature Tone Poem).The 1930's was a period of Ireland's mature writing - yielding the Piano Concerto (1930), the Legend for piano and orchestra (1933), and the choral work "These Things Shall Be" (1936-1937). We are fortunate therefore to have both "Comedy Overture" and "A Downland Suite" (1932) written for band medium at this time.As with "Maritime Overture" (written in 1944 for military band) Ireland approaches his material symphonically. The opening three notes state immediately the two seminal intervals of a semitone and a third. These are brooding and dark in Bb minor. It is these intervals which make up much of the thematic content of "Comedy," sometimes appearing in inverted form, and sometimes in major forms as well.The concept that some musical intervals are consonant , some dissonant, and some perfect is perhaps useful in understanding the nature of the tension and resolution of this work. The third is inherently unstable, and by bar 4, the interval is expanded to a fourth - with an ascending sem-quaver triplet - and then expanded to a fifth. The instability of the third pushes it towards a "perfect" resolution in the fourth or the fifth.The slow introduction is built entirely around these intervals in Bb minor and leads through an oboe cadenza, to an Allegro moderato brillante in Bb major.Once again, the semi-tone (inverted) and a third (major) comprise the main, chirpy, theme-inspired by a London bus-conductor's cry of "Piccadilly." (Much of the material in "Comedy" was re-conceived by Ireland for orchestra and published two years later under the title "A London Overture.")The expansion of the interval of a third through a fourth, fifth, sixth, and seventh now takes place quickly before our very ears at the outset of this quicker section.Immediately the theme is developed, inverted, and accents displaced across the bar line to give a 3/2 feel against the written meter. But this restlessness leads to a tranquillo built around an arpeggio figure and presented by flute and clarinet. Ireland weaves his flowing counterpoint around this melody until the original slow introduction returns leading to a stretto effect as the rising bass motifs become more urgent, requesting a resolution of the tension of that original semitone and minor third.Yet resolution is withheld at this point as the music becomes almost becalmed in a further, unrelated tranquillo section marked pianissimo. It is almost as if another side of Ireland's nature is briefly allowed to shine through the stern counterpoint and disciplined structure.This leads to virtually a full recapitulation of the chirpy "brilliante," with small additional touches of counterpoint, followed by the first tranquillo section-this time in the tonic of Bb major. But the instability of the third re-asserts itself, this time demanding a resolution. And a triumphant resolution it receives, for it finally becomes fully fledged and reiterates the octave in a closing vivace. The opening tension has at last resolved itself into the most perfect interval of all.

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.

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.
