Snapshots

Snapshots

for large ensemble


  • Instrumentation: ensemble
  • Edition: performance material
  • Order No.: LSL 10064-01

Description
One of the movements in Scorched (arrangements of seventeen tunes by John Scofield for jazz trio and orchestra) has a coda, which repeats a dense, two-bar tag which sounded like it could be developed. Snapshots starts off by revealing bits of each of the two bars (with episodes placed in-between). The full two bars of music are then revealed at the end of the piece. Snapshots is a tribute to Olly [Oliver Knussen] on his 50th birthday.
