Janácek, 15 Moravian Folksongs - arranged for String Quartet
Paul Burnell came across Janacek's Moravian Folksongs as a result of listening to recordings made by Thomas Adès.  Paul thought that the pieces would arrange well for string quartet and finished work on the arrangements in 2013. Both the score and parts are available here on MusicaNeo. The Fifteen Moravian Folksongs were composed by Leos Janácek in 1922 for piano with the folk melodies presented with the song texts. Should the ensemble wish to include singers the string quartet arrangements ...

Cocooned, recording uploaded
A recording included on the album 'Face Each Aged Ache' has been uploaded for the canon 'Cocooned'. The piece is written for 2 instruments in C, and 1 instrument in either Bb, F or Eb which means that the harmony produced will be determined by the combination of instruments that are playing. The attached recording is of 2 oboes and tenor horn in Eb.   Another interesting combination might be an oboe trio: oboe - cor anglais - oboe. Here is link to album on iTunes:   Face Each ...

There's a Tree Filled with Wings
One of several pieces to be uploaded that appear on the new album 'Face Each Aged Ache' Here is link to album on iTunes:   Face Each Aged Ache I was in Peckham Rye Park in London last summer and heard the faintest echo of a couple of notes of music - might have been a mobile phone, someone's mp3 player, I don't know.   Anyway, a melodic phrase developed in my head and when I got home I did a google search on Peckham Rye, and found a great quote from a biography of William Blake that ...

Mid-life, for 12 violins
'Mid-life' is the second track on the 2013 album 'Face Each Aged Ache'.  The score and parts have been available on MusicNeo for nearly a year, but now revised parts created in Sibelius have been uploaded.   It's quite a long piece - about 11:30.   Might make an interesting addition to a Symphony Orchestra concert where just the violins are used? Here is link to album on iTunes:  Face Each Aged Ache

H = B natural . Transposing instruments play as written. Perform as chords using letters arranged vertically. Players move between lines and / or perform as a round ...

One / (very s/low d/own) Breath
The first of several pieces to be uploaded that appear on the new album 'Face Each Aged Ache' Here is link to album on iTunes:  Face Each Aged Ache The score is a very simple 'graphic' score - a table of letter names.  The note names are read from left to right, top to bottom. Each performer plays notes, low in their register, each for a duration between 8 and 16 seconds. In an ensemble the players need not coordinate the entries of their individual notes. In a very large ensemble it ...
