Symphony (Broken Consort)

Symphony (Broken Consort)

for orchestra


  • Instrumentation: orchestra
  • Edition: performance material

 
Description
A symphony is not only a large-scale orchestral work, but one that sets out to integrate contrasting material into one unified structure.  So, to include the idea of something broken in the title may seem a little curious.  'Broken Consort' is sometimes used for a non-homogeneous ensemble (in Elizabethan music), but is here used for the presence within the orchestra of a 'gypsy ensemble' (cimbalom, piano accordion, electric violin and mandolin) that influences the orchestral fabric with its unusual timbres. John Casken
