Dean, Brett - Shadow Music (SACD)



Toimitusaika: Noin 7 - 14 arkipäivää
Swedish Chamber Orchestra / Brett Dean

At the beginning of Shadow Music the strings, of whom so much was asked in Etüdenfest, are completely silent. The Prelude begins with fortissimo strokes from 3 the low woodwind, brass and timpani. This almost brutal motif develops ‘hori - zontally’, so to speak, into a line characterized by dotted note values, taken up by the strings, which up to now have played mostly sustained notes. The dark and threatening ‘heavy/light’ emphasis characterizes the entire Prelude. All three movements of Shadow Music, premièred in Melbourne in 2002, orient themselves around a dif ferent nuance of the word ‘shadow’: according to Dean, the Prelude depicts ‘an area of shade, dark shape or partial darkness’. Forgotten Garden, the second movement, is marked ‘veiled and dark’. It is more of an impenetrably dense, mysterious, primeval forest than a domestic garden; the bass clarinet and bass trombone form the pitch-black background. The strings imitate percussive effects with bows and timpani sticks – and three of the second violins actually play percussion instruments, to be precise water-gongs. As if in search of past splendour the movement rises up powerfully in dynamic and in tempo. A trumpet solo ‘seems to recall the forgotten garden’s former glory’. An echo of this is heard in the two flutes: ‘only the shadow of its former self’. Almost inaudibly, as though whispering from a great distance, the Voices and Shadows of the third movement appear with harp glissandi and soft percussion sounds. Inexorably, however, a ghostly nocturne takes over. The only fixed point amid all the nervous scurrying and scampering is an unwavering bass line, as one might find in a passacaglia. Finally even this bass falls away, while the string writing becomes increasingly fragmented, the solo string players eagerly ‘shadow - ing’ the tutti violins. After a menacing climax, the voices and shadows slip back into their spirit world, with bizarre trills from the first violins.
