TWO. This movement begins with a vocal recitative, "Consider your verdict, the king said to the jury." A theremin, wind sounds, and percussion, decorate an episode lasting from 1 min to 2 min into this movement. The recitative gets a bit frantic, sounding like a frightened little girl.
THREE. "There was silence in the court as the rabbit read these verses," recites the singer. This is followed by an operatic episode, accompanied by an accordian. At 90 seconds into the movement, is a loud instrumental part, with blasting trumpets, with theremin joining in at 2 min, and singing beginning at 2 ½ min. At 3 min and 20 seconds, we are treated to a quiet episode with singing, accordian, and guitar. But at 3 min, 40 seconds, there is a 20-second long brassy blasting episode. At 5 ½ min, begins a 30-second loud orchestral sequence that cuts loose. It cuts loose like the final movement of Beethoven's Fifth Symphony. Then, at 6 min, the singer recites, "Silence in the court, cried out the white rabbit." What follows sounds like Carl Stalling's cartoon music.
FOUR. This starts with a 30-second aria sounding like scales (exercise scales, warming up scales).Read more ›
Barbara Hendricks is absolutely stunning, Del Tredici provides an incredible score-- unique and daring.
Bought with "In Memory of a Summer Day" I am still trying to gauge this music in relation to the last 250 years of orchestral
It's up there! As Mahler wrote of Salome to Alma: "Of this I approve entirely!".
