Die Tageszeiten by Georg Philipp Telemann (1681-1767). Edited by Brit Reipsch. For Soli SATB, SATB choir, 2 flutes, 2 oboes, bassoon, trumpet, 2 violins, viola, viola da gamba, basso continuo. Score available separately - see item CA.3913700. Cantatas. Level 3. Complete orchestral parts. Language: German. Composed 1729. TVWV 20:39. 4 pages. Duration 55 min. Published by Carus Verlag (CA.3913719). ISBN M-007-05607-0. With Language: German. Cantatas. The cantata cycle Die Tageszeiten, which was composed in Hamburg in 1757, is one of the outstanding late works of Georg Philipp Telemann. A Symphonie and four cantatas (each of which consists of an aria, accompagnato, aria, and chorus) portray, in a richly sensitive manner, the course of a day, beginning with the awakening of nature to the sunset. The poetry of Friedrich Wilhelm Zachariae and Telemann's music herald the beauty of nature, as well as the greatness of God revealed within it. Colorful instrumentation and pictures in sound corresponding to each time of the day, delicate compositional structure, and an ingenious realization of the text characterize this work, whose musical idiom is at times reminiscent of Haydn.

Hemispheres by Joseph Turrin (1947-). For Concert Band (Piccolo, 3 Flutes, 3 Oboes, English Horn, Eb Clarinet, 2 Bb Clarinets, Bass Clarinet, 2 Bassoons, Contrabassoon, 5 Horns in F, 4 Bb Trumpets, 3 Trombones, Bass Trombone, Tuba, Harp, Piano & Celesta, Timpani, Percussion 1 (snare drum, wind chimes, bell tre). Grade 6. Score and parts. Duration 20:20. Published by C. Alan Publications (CN.06820). When Kurt Masur commissioned me to compose a work for his farewell concert with the New York Philharmonic he requested that it be exclusively for winds. Composing a piece for one half of the orchestra became the inspiration for the title Hemispheres (defined as one of two half spheres formed by a plane through the sphere's center). Hemispheres would become the metaphor for a piece written in three movements, with the middle movement, like an equator dividing the larger halves.While composing, I began to explore the concept of the hemisphere and how individual parts come together forming a larger, more perfect whole. The idea of a sphere, a circle, the earth, evolution, the cycle, the journey, and returning to the origin seem to take hold. I thought of how every culture has beliefs about creation and that somehow they are all based on a similar idea - that of returning to the origin, the full circle. Through my research on this subject I became most interested in three particular stories of creation all from very diverse cultures: The western (I. Genesis), American Indian (2. Earth Canto), and Hindu (3. Rajas). These stories became the motivation for Hemispheres in that music itself also takes on a cyclical form with reoccurring themes throughout and short motifs that develop into larger groups.Much of the music was complete by the time the horrific events of September 11, 2002 had occurred. Although there was more composing to be done, these events had a profound effect not only on me, but consequently, on the music as well. I began to look at the piece from a completely different perspective. As I continued writing, I decided to expand previous sections, cut, refine, and add new material until the work took on a new shape - something larger and more potent. What had started out as three culturally diverse stories coming together into one larger unison had now become an homage to life, earth, creation and the divine forces that drive the sphere of existence. In the shadow of September 11, 2001, I realized that I had written a memorial piece. Not as a melancholy elegy, as one might expect, but a work that is driving, forceful, exuberant, and a celebration of life itself.- Joseph Turrin.

Written in 1929, this diptych, originally conceived as an accompaniment to a choreographic impression, consists of a rather tragic first part and an exuberant second part leading to a frantic finale. The most original aspect of this composition is undoubtedly its polyrhthmic character, whereas the beautiful flute solo part should also be mentioned.

Orchestra Music. Score and parts. Duration 20:00. Published by C. Alan Publications (CN.R99902). Derek Bourgeois is one of Britain's leading composers for brass and military bands and for solo wind instruments. Early in his career he showed a strong interest in the trombone and wrote a triple concerto for three trombones and orchestra. The idea was that the entire trombone section of an orchestra could come forward and display their abilities as a group and individually. While the premiere audience was strongly enthusiastic about the piece, it was rarely played after that. In 1988 Bourgeois returned to the trombone as a concerto instrument for the occasion of the first international trombone symposium in London, which was held in 1988. It is a substantial twenty-minute piece in three movements, "Allegro," "Adagio," and "Presto." Because trombonist from the worlds of pop and jazz would attend the symposium as well as classical artists, Bourgeois decided to make his new concerto musically ecumenical, and it was deliberately tailored to have an appeal wider than the usual classical audience. The third movement, in particular, was a great hit. The concerto was written for the Swedish player Christian Lindberg, who premiered it.

Grade 5. Score and parts. Duration 19:50. Published by C. Alan Publications (CN.08880). "Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live..." Exodus 22:18Movement I: THE DANCEAccording to Arthur Miller's play, "THE CRUCIBLE", the entire episode began when several young girls (one the daughter of the minister) were caught dancing nude in the fields. To escape the harsh puritan punishments administered for their sins, the girls claimed Tituba, a slave woman from Barbados, had "conjured" spirits. This movement evokes the mood of that first night as each of four instruments (flute, oboe, clarinet and bassoon), portrays one of the antagonists on their journey into the forest on that dark night. The "devil's voice" is heard in euphonium as he changes the mode of the girls dance theme. As the dance builds to a feverish climax, the strains of music from the church are heard echoing in the distance. The dissonance of these themes is indicative of the inherent conflict in the young girl's actions. "The Devil's Waltz" is heard as the girls join in the seductive, ritualistic dance. The initial dance theme is heard again (with its modal alterations) as the girls return to the village and the church. The last strain of the movement corresponds to the line from the hymn "for still our ancient foe doth seek to work us woe..."Movement II: SCENES FROM THE VILLAGE (THE ACCUSED)Salem village was a contentious place full of hard-working, deeply religious people. The town had been suffering land battles for years. The New England winters were dull and hard and there was little to do as celebratory events such as Christmas or Mardi Gras were forbidden. The Village had been caught up in serious disputes with three previous ministers before it finally settled on its fourth, the Reverend Samuel Parris. The power of God and Satan was unquestioned. In this environment, hysteria could run rampant on this sleepy village. Between June and September of 1692, scores of men and women were accused of and tried for witchcraft. Themes in this movement represent two married couples and an old matron accused and executed as witches. Rebecca Nurse was a pious, nearly deaf, seventy-one year old woman. She replied to her accusers "OF this thing I am innocent as a child unborn, but surely, what sin hath God found in me unrepented of that He could lay such an affliction on me in my old age?" Martha Cory denied ever having been a witch and her husband Giles, in his humility had actually testified against her. John Procter was one of the first to speak out against the girls. "If they are let alone we should all be devils and witches." When first his wife and then he himself were accused, witnesses said that it met with much skepticism. The movement begins with Rebecca's theme, it's spinning continuo emblematic of her rocking chair. She had seen difficult times before; just when it seems her theme will stop, it finds the strength to continue. Next the "Cory theme" is heard representing the old couple trying to survive the harsh winter. As the village comes to life, their themes are turned into fugue and double fugue. As the movement nears its end, a love theme is heard representing the strong bond between the Proctors. Their theme is honest, strong and consonant, until the added Eb gives the theme an uneasy feeling of some discord lurking below the surface of this serene melody.Movement III: THE TRIALIn all, fourteen women and six men were put to death as witches. Nineteen of them were hanged. In an attempt to coerce a confession, Giles Cory was "pressed" to death by adding rocks to his chest until he was crushed. Reportedly his last words were "More Weight". Despite their high place of esteem in the community. the Proctors were given to the gallows to appease the screaming children. Even pious, God-fearing Rebecca Nurse was sent to Gallows Hill.The trials were a mockery of judicial restraint. When the accused were lead in, the girls would fall writhing on the floor, accusing the defendants of attacking, pinching, or biting them. If the judges remained unimpressed, the girls would claim the "witches" were sitting on the beams over their heads. The courtroom was a cacophonous, wicked circus with no chance of defense or search for the truth. This movement recreates the air of frustration and confusion as each of the accused are lead in, questioned and interrupted as they attempt to defend themselves. An eight-note theme is truncated again and again as if it were sand passing through an hourglass, for once in the courtroom, it was simply a matter of time until the guilty verdict was issued. The "Cory theme" is heard First and, as they state their case, the people of the village join in to claim their innocence. Their defense goes unheard. Martha is sent to the gallows and Giles is "pressed" to death. The love theme of the Proctors is heard again but it too is interrupted and ignored. They are sent to their deaths. Rebecca's theme is uttered softly to no avail; unlike before, it hasn't the power to continue. She is condemned to death as well.Movement IV: THE QUESTIONFinally, the Governor of Massachusetts forbad the use use of "spectral evidence" in the proceedings. The girls were silenced. Several months after the fury had dissipated, the "afflicted" girls were walking in a nearby town. As they passed a woman that they did not know, they fell writhing on the ground, accusing the woman of witchcraft. However, the people of this town paid the girls no attention. They had no desire to repeat the sins of Salem. The surprised girls rose and went on their way. No words were spoken, no names and deeds given, no apparitions imagined or explained.Narcissism would have us believe that that incident closed the book on witch trials in America. But history proves otherwise. The innocent people whose lives were wrecked by the McCarthy Hearings as recently as the 1950's relived the sins of Salem in a very real sense. The perrenial election-year arguments are at times eerily reminiscent of the witch hunts. "Those who do not study history are doomed to repeat it..." it would seem as true for most who do. Despite the fact that we condemn the people of Salem, we are all too capable of repeating their mistakes. The question is unfortunately not "will it happen again?" but "when......?".
