Passage

Passage

for orchestra


  • Instrumentation: orchestra
  • Edition: performance material

 
Description
In my work Passage, the title refers to the transformation of musical passages from Ludwig van Beethoven’s Fourth Symphony, which informed this work, into a modern musical language, and to the passage of time between 1806, the year of Beethoven’s composition, and 2018.

The piece is in three contrasting movements, with each movement responding to a different aspect of Beethoven’s score. The first movement contains material from both the first and third movements of Beethoven, the second refers to the slow movement, and the third to the Finale. Ultimately, the piece stands on its own terms, filtered through my own musical language, to form something of our own time. Pierre Jalbert
