Dream

Dream

for orchestra


  • Instrumentation: orchestra
  • Edition: performance material

 
Description
The title Dream is not a musical evocation prompted by a specific dream. Rather, the musical form models some typical characteristics of dreams – unpredictable, fantastic juxtapositions; exotic simultaneities; recognizable and mysterious images blended together; intense clarity; opaque chaos; nightmarish intensity, all unfolding in unreal time, often linked by a single, recurring element. This landscape of the mind allows me to explore a post-Debussian formal aesthetic I have been developing over the years. Bernard Rands
