    Series: Boosey & Hawkes Chamber Music
    Composer: Steve Reich

    Add to Wish List Add to Cart “Quartet, when mentioned in the context of concert music, is generally assumed to mean string quartet. In my case, the quartet that has played a central role in many of my pieces (besides the string quartet) is that of two pianos and two percussion [instruments]. The piece is one of the more complex I have composed. It frequently changes key and often breaks off continuity to pause or take up new material. Though the parts are not unduly difficult, it calls for a high level of ensemble virtuosity. The form is one familiar throughout history: fast, slow, fast, played without pause. The...(more)

    An Opera in Two Acts

    Series: BH Stage Works
    Composer: Michael Daugherty

    Add to Wish List Add to Cart Note from the composer: Jackie O is a celebration of musical life in the late sixties, a pop opera that explores the interplay of musical idioms associated with “high” and “popular” culture in America. To compose these various idioms into my musical language, I draw on my background as a musician who came of age during the sixties, playing in rock and jazz ensembles, performing in avant-garde improvisation groups, and paying my dues as a cocktail pianist in nightclubs, while also being trained as a composer of concert music in the symphonic tradition....(more)

Living in an old mill alongside the Bury Pill stream, I wrote from a stable block, enjoying a vista across Cheriton Valley and the river to Ryers Down. This work is a musical reflection of time spent there.” Suitable...(more)

    Series: BH Stage Works
    Composer: David T. Little
    Author: Royce Vavrek

    Add to Wish List Add to Cart Based on a short story by Judy Budnitz, Dog Days is a contemporary opera that investigates the psychology of a working class American family against a not-so-distant-future wartime scenario.

At what point must we give in to our animal instincts merely to survive?

  • Masquerade

    for Orchestra

    Series: Boosey & Hawkes Scores/ Books
    Composer: Anna Clyne

    Add to Wish List Add to Cart Composer's Notes: Masquerade draws inspiration from the original mid-18th century promenade concerts held in London's pleasure gardens. As is true today, these concerts were a place where people from all walks of life mingled to enjoy a wide array of music. Other forms of entertainment ranged from the sedate to the salacious with acrobatics, exotic street entertainers, dancers, fireworks and masquerades. I am fascinated by the historic and sociological courtship between music and dance. Combined with costumes, masked guises and elaborate settings, masquerades created an exciting, yet...(more)
