Another one. Impressionistic. Also: love Satie's 'yachting', too.
So this is a kind of early morning. Some town by the sea. Yachts, seagulls, blushing sky and other stuff.

Just a miniature. The idea came up, when I was listening Ligeti's 15th etude from his 3rd book (White on White) and Mogwai, apparently :D

Imitation of Stravinsky' late 1920s Neo-Classical style, which is imitation of Lully's 17th century French style. Work from the period, when I was in love with 'Apollon Musagète'.

Three themes: first - Midas', second - Marsyas', third - Apollo's.

Scenery: myth of musical contest between Apollo (cithare) and Marsyas/Pan (aulos), which was judged by Midas/Muses.
Marsyas constantly practiced in playing on flute and brought the level of his mastery to such perfection, that he dared to call Apollo to the contest. The judge was Midas, who, being close in spirit and tastes to Marsyas, delivered a verdict in his favor. According to another story, they were judged by the Muses, and Marsyas won, but, then, Apollo began to playing cithare and singing, after what Marsyas lost the contest. Then Apollo hung Marsyas on a high pine tree and tore off his skin, Midas was awarded with donkey ears for his verdict. Really nice.

Four Poems of Sylvia Plath

So, after I wrote Hemingway's Eulogy, there was some kind of a one year long creative crisis. It was over, when I for the first time heard Hans Jacobi's, Jan-Willem van Ree's and John Martin's works published here. This cycle is derived from that inspiration, that their music gave me. So, I dedicated this work to the people, who revived my musical workshop.

About poems:

All four poems is taken from Sylvia Plath' last book of poems 'Ariel'. The sequence of poems I used here is not an accidental. 'The Couriers' (break, divorce and lies), 'Contusion' (that is emotional, represents severe depression, in which Sylvia spent the last days of her life - the poem was written 11 days before suicide), 'Edge' (her last work: the thoughts about suicide and the thoughts about her children and motherhood) are directed towards the death. 'Edge' is a tense magnetic center of the set. The mix of harsh and mild dissonants is actually a dizzy odours of the garden and dizzy disposition of semantic layers within the text of the poem. 'Morning Song' is awakening from the nightmare by her baby's cry, finding happiness in her motherhood, but, simultaneously, ambivalence caused by fragility (image of ballons at the end) of purity and beauty that her children is are. New wave of pessimism. The seeming opportunity of a new start is faded. Morning turns out into its homophone word.

Structure of set:

I. The Couriers (to Jan-Willem van Ree) is a set of fragments within global ternary form, just like Eulogy was.
II. Contusion (to Hans Jacobi) is a little subtle piece concentrated on harmonic and canonical imposition.
III. Edge (to John Martin, a.k.a. 21st century boy) is tightly gathered row of images, rounded by main motif.
IV. Morning Song (to Joe DiRienzo, a.k.a. penne vodka) is set of fragments/sonata rondo/theme with variations kind of thing. Main theme rounds many smaller ternary constructions based on it, but not the ending coda, that is outstands from the piece.
Cadenza part was removed from the work, because I already published it as a standalone (that nighty snowflakes thing).
