4 NOTES Elspeth Brooke: Lullaby The piece starts with a simple melody in the Lydian mode. The melodies develop out from the opening, becoming more chromatic and using a combination of double stopping and harmonics on the cello. The middle section develops into an improvised climax, layering up prerecorded cello with the live cello playing. The final section of the piece returns to the still, calm mood of the opening. The electronics for the piece work through a Max/MSP patch that processes the live cello notes and creates a granulated electronic echo of them. Elspeth Brooke Elspeth Brooke is a London-based composer, educator, and performer. She studied composition at Cambridge University and at the Royal Academy of Music. Her music has been performed at the Wigmore Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall, Sadler s Wells, the Aldeburgh Festival, the Spitalfields Festival, the Al- Bustan Festival and broadcast on BBC Radio 3, by performers including the London Symphony Orchestra, Kuss Quartet, Britten Sinfonia, CoMA, The Clerks, Exaudi, Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, Colin Currie, Sarah Nicolls, and Oliver Coates. Jonathan Harvey: The Riot The Riot, first performed March 1994 at St. George s Brandon Hill, Bristol by the Het Trio, is a work in which virtuoso exhilaration is predominant. The game is to throw around themes which retain their identity sufficiently to bounce off each other sharply, even when combined polyphonically or mixed up together in new configurations. Each theme belongs to a distinctive harmonic field characterized by about two intervals; for example, the first is based on fourths and whole tones creating also minor sevenths and, as a further development, linear unfoldings in circles of fourths (or fifths). From time to time energy runs out and a mechanical repetition of an element takes over, dying away like an electronic delay. Such a process in extended form provides the ending. Jonathan Harvey Commissioned by the University of Bristol music department for the HET TRIO, with funding in part by South West Arts for the Colston Symposium in Born in Warwickshire in 1939, Jonathan Harvey was a chorister at St. Michael s College, Tenbury and later a major music scholar at St John s College, Cambridge. He gained doctorates from the universities of Glasgow and Cambridge and (on the advice of Benjamin Britten) studied privately with Erwin Stein and Hans Keller. He was a Harkness Fellow at Princeton ( ), professor of music at Sussex University ( ); and professor of music at Stanford University ( ). He is an Honorary Fellow of St. John s College, Cambridge, and was a Fellow at the Institute of Advanced Study in Berlin in An invitation from Boulez to work at IRCAM in the early 1980s set the composer on a path that has characterized his whole career, resulting in eight realizations at the Institute, and two for the Ensemble Intercontemporain, including the celebrated tape piece Mortuos Plango, Vivos Voco, Bhakti for ensemble and electronics, and String Quartet No. 4, with live electronics. Harvey has also composed for orchestra Tranquil Abiding, White as Jasmine, and Madonna of Winter and Spring; chamber groups: four string quartets, Soleil Noir/Chitra, and Death of Light, Light of Death; as well as works for solo instruments. He has written many widely performed unaccompanied works for choir as well as the large-scale cantata for the BBC Proms Millennium, Mothers Shall Not Cry (2000). His church opera Passion and Resurrection (l981) was the subject of a BBC television film and received seventeen subsequent performances. His opera Inquest of Love, commissioned by ENO, was premiered under the baton of Mark Elder in 1993 and repeated at Theatre de la Monnaie, Brussels, in His third opera, Wagner Dream, commissioned by Nederlandse Oper and realized at IRCAM was premiered to great acclaim in A recording of this performance has been released on Cyprus Records. Wagner Dream has also been performed in London s Barbican Hall with the BBC Symphony Orchestra and conductor Martyn Brabbins. A further staging is planned by Welsh National Opera in 2013 with conductor Nicholas Collon. The year 2008 saw the premiere of Messages (for the Rundfunkchor Berlin and the Berlin Philharmoniker; in 2012 it won the RPS Award for Large Scale Composition). Speakings was the culmination of his residency ( ) with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, as was Body Mandala and... Towards a Pure Land. Harvey s works are now in constant demand from a host of international organizations and extensively played and toured by the major ensembles including Musikfabrik, Ensemble Modern, Ensemble Intercontemporain, ASKO, Nieuw Ensemble of Amsterdam, and Ictus Ensemble. Some performances are given or broadcast each year, and about 100 recordings of his music are issued on CD. He has honorary doctorates from the Universities of Southampton, Sussex, Bristol, Birmingham, and Huddersfield, is a member of Academia Europaea, and in 1993 was awarded the prestigious Britten Award for composition. In 2007 he was awarded the Giga-Hertz Prize for a lifetime s work in electronic music and received the prestigious Prince Pierre of Monaco Prize in Musical Composition in 2009 for his orchestral work Speakings, and the Charles Cros Grand Prix du Président for a lifetime s work, becoming the first British composer to receive this coveted honor since its inception in Harvey s standing in his seventieth year was widely celebrated in the international musical community with dedicated concerts, new recordings, festival focuses, and composer portraits. In October 2011 his major large-scale commission Weltethos (orchestra, choir, and children s chorus) for the Berliner Philharmoniker to a text by Swiss ethicist Hans Kueng 4

5 NOTES was premiered in Berlin. Weltethos also opened the Cultural Olympiad festival in Birmingham s Symphony Hall in June 2012 by the CBSO and was performed at London s Southbank Centre in October The BBC marked its appreciation of Harvey s international standing this year with a weekend dedicated to his music at the Barbican. The Total Immersion festival featured many of his major works, including the British concert premiere of Wagner Dream. Stuart MacRae: Equilibrium From the beginning of Equilibrium the solo viola is at its most expressive (in the traditional sense), playing a long decorated line which weaves through all parts of the instrument s range. Apart from the brief opening outburst, the ensemble takes only a very small supporting role in this passage. From this initial point of simplicity, the piece begins to destroy its own material in various ways: through imitation, repetition, digression, deconstruction, delayed resolution, distortion, and negation. This expressive identity of the viola s opening material is constantly called into question and redefined. The role of the viola as soloist is given successively less emphasis at the start of each of the three movements, and within each movement the material of the viola and its status are progressively diminished. Thus the piece brings the relationship between the viola and the ensemble, which at first was distinct but not antagonistic, into a state of equilibrium, while the transformed material takes on a more elusive, perhaps contemplative character more suited to this new state of affairs. Stuart MacRae Commissioned by the Kreisler Ensemble with support from the PRS Foundation, the RVW Trust, the Britten-Pears Foundation and Christoph Trestler. Stuart MacRae was born in Inverness, Scotland, in After reading music at Durham University with Philip Cashian, Sohrab Uduman, and Michael Zev Gordon, he studied composition at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama with Simon Bainbridge and Robert Saxton. Often inspired by aspects of the natural landscape, MacRae s musical style draws on various strands of European modernism, including the music of Carter and Xenakis as well as Maxwell Davies. MacRae came to public attention as a finalist in the 1996 Lloyd s Bank Young Composer s Workshop when the BBC Philharmonic gave the first professional performance of Boreraig, a piece inspired by a visit to a deserted village on the Isle of Skye. From 1999 to 2003, MacRae was composer in association with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra. He was Edinburgh Festival Creative Fellow ( ) and held a residency at Villa Concordia in Bamberg ( ). The premiere of his Violin Concerto in 2001 brought MacRae wider public recognition. Following its premiere by Tasmin Little at the BBC Proms, it was performed at the Edinburgh Festival and the Festival Musica in Strasbourg and has subsequently been recorded by Christian Tetzlaff on NMC Records. The Violin Concerto proved a catalyst for further success, beginning with Ancrene Wisse (2002), a setting of Middle English texts for soprano, female chorus, and orchestra. Hamartia (2003), for cello and strings, explores the ancient Greek concept of a tragic flaw. The piece was premiered by the Scottish Ensemble and Liwei Qin on its 2004 spring tour and performed again at the BBC Proms in Three Pictures, commissioned by the Scottish Chamber Orchestra in 2004, depicts a series of imaginary landscapes, while in Two Scenes from the Death of Count Ugolino (2004) a mezzo-soprano soloist brings to life two grotesque passages from Dante s Inferno. A second work for the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Birches (2007), draws its inspiration from closer to home, recalling elements of the landscape of the Scottish Highlands. The premiere of Gaudete at the 2008 BBC Proms demonstrated a significant development in MacRae s musical language. The piece, a 28-minute setting of poetry by Ted Hughes, was performed by the BBC Symphony Orchestra and soprano Susanna Andersson, conducted by Edward Gardner. The Times wrote that MacRae has thrillingly given Hughes s work a new incarnation. Blood, granite, oak and bone were imprinted anew on the imagination through the heightened experience of music. His one-act opera The Assassin Tree (2006) was co-commissioned by the Edinburgh International Festival and Royal Opera House. Featuring a libretto by Simon Armitage, its premiere production was directed by Emio Greco and Pieter Scholten. Echo and Narcissus, MacRae s first work for dance, a collaboration with choreographer Cathy Marston, was presented at the Linbury Studio of the Royal Opera House in May The premiere of Remembrance Day, a chamber opera to a libretto by Louise Welsh, was commissioned in 2009 as part of Scottish Opera s Five:15 series. Stuart MacRae is published exclusively by Novello & Co. Naomi Pinnock: String Quartet The subtitle could easily be luminis (a light, an opening), lucere (shine), or lux (light). While I was composing I often thought about this image of light: an intense light source and, further away, a light that was much softer and paler. That is what the piece gradually became about a set of three slow, luminous but fragile variations around a fiery core. Naomi Pinnock Naomi Pinnock comes from Cleckheaton, West Yorkshire, United Kingdom. She studied in London at King s College London with Harrison Birtwistle, at the Royal Academy of Music with Brian Elias, and with Wolfgang Rihm at the Hochschule für Musik, Karlsruhe, Germany.

Current projects include a new work for Schola Heidelberg vocal ensemble. She currently lives in Berlin. Robert Saxton: Sentinel of the Rainbow The title is both descriptive and structural the descriptive aspect of the piece refers to Heimdal, one of the gods of Teutonic mythology. He not only was the god of light, but also personified the rainbow and presided over the beginnings of things over the prima rather than the summa. He was the guardian of the gods and was always found near the bridge of the Bifröst the rainbow which led from the dwelling place of men to that of the gods, and he was their divine sentinel. He could see at night as easily as in the day and owned a trumpet, which could be heard all round the earth. In the music much emphasis is placed on high bright sounds which contrast with deeper ones, characterizing in sound Heimdall s dual qualities of brightness and power. At a structural level the piece sets out with high clear sound stating a rhythmic scheme that, in augmentation and diminution, plays an important role throughout. As the music gathers momentum, the instruments trace gradually ascending paths. The bass clarinet moves upwards to the E clarinet just as the flute s melodic line is transformed into the music of a high dancing character on the piccolo. The two string instruments also trace an ascending path as a duo, the piano following suit until the whole ensemble reaches a high bright section, which, after a speedy descent, rises once more only to fall in torrents into a sustained section that returns finally to the opening. The general shape of each instrument s melodic line and indeed the contour of the piece as a whole have thus traced a series of non-symmetrical arches, and at the close the whole process is heard beginning again, mirroring Heimdal s role as the symbol of all that is to be born anew. It was first performed by the Fire of London in the Bloomsbury Theatre as part of the Contemporary Network Tour. Robert Saxton (August, 1984) After early encouragement and advice from Benjamin Britten, Robert Saxton studied with Elisabeth Lutyens, then at St. Catharine s College, Cambridge, with Peter le Huray and Robin Holloway.
