Conversation with Magic Stones

[Introduction] [Ascending Form] [Contrapuntal Forms] [Quiet Form] [Conversation with Magic Stones] [Back to Rhythm of the Stones]

This work was commissioned by Yorkshire Sculpture Park for the exhibitions celebrating the centenary of Dame Barbara Hepworth in 2003. As a solo work it forms part of a 25 minute concert work titled Music for Sculptures for four musicians. It was first performed in this version by David Langstroth of the BBC National Orchestra of Wales at YSP on June 14 2003.

It was conceived to be played by any contrabass instrument with or without a small ensemble. The compass and tessitura of the solo part makes this possible.
The work is presented initially for double bass, but versions for electric bass guitar, tuba, and contra-bassoon are available.

The version presented here is scored for:
Solo Contrabass Instrument
Clarinet in Bb
Trumpet in Bb
Bass Trombone
