HOME PAGE FEBRUARY 2017

HAPPY NEW YEAR at last, but what happened to my home pages since last August?

Many apologies, but my webmaster was inundated with work, I was travelling in Spain and the USA but we have now made contact and plan to get this out for February 1st.

My best man and best mate, Guy Woolfenden, would have been 80 this year so do consider programming a piece by other than Gallimaufry or Illyrian Dances.

Wherever you are, whatever the month and the weather, it is always time to start thinking of repertoire for next season, and so I am completing my survey of Felix Hauswirth’s masterly book of repertoire ideas, with a ramble from N – Z. This home Page is full of other repertoire ideas, usually with links to Youtube. Good hunting, and have a very good year.

LEO SMIT 1900 - 1943

APOLOGIES to CARINE ALDERS, Leo Smit Stichting

I was so excited writing about Smit’s two wind works in my last web home page that I never checked for mistakes, and so need to apologise to the Leo Smit foundation; their co-odinator writes:

Dear Mr. Reynish,

I was very happy to see your August homepage devoted to Leo Smit and Dick Kattenburg! It may interest you to know that we are working on an online catalogue of more than 35 suppressed composers living and working in the Netherlands. The English language website will include biographies, sound samples, links to published works and links to manuscripts. I send out a monthly newsletter on our concerts, but this is in Dutch. To stay informed, I would advise you to follow us on facebook: www.facebook.org/LeoSmitStichting. Most of the posts are in English.

May I draw your attention to some unfortunate typo’s in your homepage? In the title you have renamed Dick Kattenburg under the name of Dick Ketting and further down in the article his name is misspelled as KattenbErg instead of KattenbUrg.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me!

Best wishes,

Carine Alders

Tim Reynish writes:

I have now listened a couple of times to a rehearsal recording of this work; I must agree with Odd Terje Lysebo, that this is an especially fine piece, worthy to stand alongside the Stravinsky Symphonies of Wind Instruments, Magnus Lindberg Gran Duo and Skrowaczewski Music for Wind. Odd writes that he is conducting at the Escola Superior de Música de Lisboa, Lisbon in 2017 – WHAT A PROGRAMME!

Skrowaczewski Music for Wind and Brass

Ruders Sonatas

Lindberg Gran Duo

The composer writes:

The present suite SONATAS is a composition subtitled ´six pieces of music for large wind ensemble, percussion, piano and harp´. It opens with a REVEILLE, a short ´wake-up call´, a fanfare opening the gate into what follows. The second movement is called PASTORALE and certainly is that, a peaceful unfolding of gentle chords and sounds of a bucolic nature. Nothing dramatic happens, whereas in the third movement SCHERZO the woodwinds chase each other in a wild relay run. Then, all of a sudden, the mood changes, and we are plunged right into the middle of the darkest night. In the NOCTURNE, unnervingly subtitled sinistro, the low rumbling chords in the trombones and prickly outbursts in oboes and horns form the sinister backdrop to this wordless Grand Guignol. Which merges seamlessly into PANORAMA, an unfolding festive, almost pageant like ´sound-scape´of dancing rhytms and jubilant scales. Slowly, however, the tempo drops and the former boisterous body of sound is being slowly and mercilessly ´skeletonized´ - and at the end there is nothing left. RETRAITE - "the last post". The day is over, the sun sets.
