Programme Note

Scored for guitar, flute and Bb clarinet, …vers libre… (meaning “free verse”) threads through a succession of musical landscapes, punctuated by colouristic events and frequent upheavals in pulse (governed by metric modulations), never pausing to cast an eye backwards. The work was premiered at the Nelson Composers’ Workshop in 2002 and has received subsequent performances at the 2003 ACL Forum in Seoul, Korea, and at the neue musik aus neuseeland festival at the Musikhochschule Lübeck in 2006. Dylan Lardelli has played the guitar part in all performances. …vers libre… is published by Waiteata Press and appears on a CD of works by emerging New Zealand composers.

Difficulty:
Advanced
