Mixtures & Interludes
Lawrence CasserleyJump to catalogue
Sparingly scored, these miniatures are full of surprise and delight. The work consists of nine short sections played continuously. In Mixture 1 - Incantation, linear counterpoint for high woodwind and low strings is interspersed by distinctive brass figures and percussion motives. A brief Solo for double bass leads into Interlude 1 where harmonic writing is broken by short woodwind fragments before Duet where a simple rhythmic cell is developed by the brass instruments. Mixture 2 - Exultation alternate block chords with active rhythmic activity. The Trio for flute, clarinet and percussion is followed by Interlude 2 where woodwind and string counterpoint is interrupted by static chords. After a short Quartet for trumpet and strings, Mixture 3 - Apotheosis combines the techniques of the earlier movements. An original and rewarding work.
