A FRENCH NOEL (Traditional) / NSATTBGb
Shannon GSM1005 (Glen Shannon)
SUSPICION by Glen Shannon published 2012. Commissioned by Alexandra Terhoff of Dortmund, Germany for two of her recorder ensembles. The music is intended to be energizing, accessible for intermediate players, and most importantly FUN for both the players and audience. Throughout the piece, threads of staccato eighth-notes infuse the music with anxiety, play these passages impatiently, with super-light tonguing. In the development the main theme alternately undergoes fragmentation, stretchy rhythmic distortion, and finally replacement with a new theme floating in the highest parts. The collective mood brightens which begins a brief conference of solo statements in the upper parts answered by chromatic gestures in the basses. This little chat ends with a series of 'bell-tone' arpeggios that run downward through the whole ensemble. After a final climactic moment the piece ends with a quite recap. For recorder septet: sopranino,Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Bass, Great Bass, Contrabass, score and parts, Intermediate and Up.
