Harmonio By Ian Moore
eBook (ePub): $6.75
Musical ideas derived from the opening theme are developed throughout the rest of the work. The opening motifs are also significant to the structure of the composition; they indicate the start of new... More > sections. However, unlike most of my other contemporary music, it is written without a pre-planned form. The main intention of this work is to explore how subtle orchestral timbres can be deployed to create a tense and dramatic atmosphere. ‘Harmonio’ is a term I created to mean ‘harmonic resonance’ - a technique that produces subtle changes of timbre.< Less
Narcissistic By Ian Moore
eBook (ePub): $4.03
Initially, I intended to write a series of biographical ‘incidents’ outlining significant events in my life. But then, it turned into an observation about the whole concept of self-image.... More > Many of us are familiar with the story of Narcissus. The young man who saw his own reflection in the water and fell in love with it, not realising it was merely an image. Unable to leave the beauty of his reflection, he lost his will to live. He stared at his reflection until he died. We live, perhaps, in a age of narcissism. This is one of my first completed orchestral works. It ends with a de-constructed theme from Igor Stravinsky’s ‘Rite of Spring’.< Less
Chamber Piece 1 By Ian Moore
eBook (ePub): $1.07
'Chamber Piece I' is one of my first major compositions. Even though, there are obvious influences from Claude Debussy’s “La Prelude d’une Faune ” and the pounding chords of... More > Igor Stravinsky’s "The Rite of Spring”, none of these references are used in their original form. The music has been mentally absorbed and regenerated in this work. The individuality of this piece can be seen in its use of thematic material. Despite the fact that this piece was totally unplanned, it has a carefully crafted structure. Virtually all of the material is derived from the initial flute theme. Also, the transparency of the orchestration has a delicacy that is in my opinion somewhat unique. Although this could never be referred to as one of my 'mature' compositions, it is one of the earliest works that made it possible for me to take a vital step forward as a composer.< Less
Adieu Mon Frère By Ian Moore
eBook (ePub): $7.71
In 2005, the contemporary oboist, Christopher Redgate, asked me to write a piece for a concert he was performing with Ian Pace (piano) at Kings College, London University. About the same time, I... More > discovered the news concerning the tragic death of my brother (to whom the work is dedicated). Hence the title, “Adieu mon Frère”. Unlike most of my music up to that point, I deliberately exploited the lyricism of the instrument. This is especially evident in the opening phrase of the solo oboe. However, it is a lyricism that does not make any external references to my brother’s memory; e.g. there is no intention to be sentimental. A year later, this work became the main source of material for “Empfindsamkeit” (for oboe and string quartet).< Less
