    Buss, HJ :: Constellations

    Buss, HJ

    CONSTELLATIONS for flute, piano, and percussion (1 or 2 players) by Howard J. Buss is part of a series of compositions by the composer inspired by the awesome grandeur and beauty of the cosmos. The forward thrust, narrative quality, and colorful ambiance of the music suggest the musicians are on a wondrous journey exploring a series of varied and colorful star systems. The juxtaposition between agitated chromatic passages and tonal, focused sections is analogous to the experience of viewing up-close, seemingly chaotic space 'debris' (dust, rocks, gas, etc.) as contrasted with the beauty and exquisite organization of star systems viewed from afar.

    Buss, HJ :: Modern Times

    Modern Times
    Buss, HJ

    Howard Buss presents Modern Times for narrator, flute doubling piccolo, and four percussionists.

    'A powerful, dramatic depiction of life in our time. Provocative, at times mystical, and occasionally humorous, this work addresses an eclectic range of subjects such as taxes, neglected children, team mascots, and the information glut. The tenor of Buss social commentary is somewhere between the witty jeering of Mark Twain and the pithy insights of Sinclair Lewis. In his free verse one finds provocation without violence and intense anger without profanity.'

    - The Tampa Tribune.

    The sophisticated music of MODERN TIMES transports the poetry into the dramatic and colorful sound world of the flute and percussion ensemble. The result is a unique and fresh view of the culture(s) in which we live. The writing is mature and fresh, yet is within reach of a solid college ensemble.

    Movements (that may be performed separately): I. Info Glut, II. Night Tide, III. The Hunt, V. Five Question Interlude, V. The Asphalt Blanket, VI. To a Neglected Child, VII. Giggles!?!, VIII. Modern Times.

    Percussion distribution: Perc. 1: Xylophone, lion roar, tam-tam, vibraslap, 2 suspended cymbals, Chinese bell tree & bongos;
    Perc.2: Marimba, snare drum, bass drum, 2 anvils (metal pipes may be substituted), glass jug or jars (to be broken for the sonic effect), conga drum, wind chimes & triangle;
    Perc. 3: Vibes, roto toms, tambourine, tam-tam, police whistle, shaker, duck call;
    Perc. 4: Orchestra bells, timpani (4), agogo bells, 2 suspended cymbals, hi-hat, wind chimes, wood block, frog croak (may be imitated vocally), boing box effect (a flexitone may be substituted), triangle & guiro.

  • Buss, HJ :: Mysterious Exit

    Mysterious Exit

    Buss, HJ

    The title refers to the inexplicable disappearance of the 14th Century Sinagua Indians who inhabited an area in what is now the State of Arizona. This work was inspired by the composer s visit to the Sinagua pueblo ruins and is a musical representation of how the Sinaguan culture graced the austere and forbidding landscape of the region. The central section of the piece exhibits some of the intriguing rhythmic asymmetry found in Hopi dance songs.

    Perc. 1: Orchestra bells, temple blocks, suspended cymbals(medium and large), bead pod rattle, metal wind chimes.
    Perc. 2: Marimba, medium suspended cymbal.
    Perc. 3: Xylophone, large suspended cymbal.
    Perc. 4: Vibraphone, tom tom(American Indian), sleigh bells, bean pod rattle, suspended cymbals, bell tree.

    Buss, HJ :: Scenes from the Holy Land

    Scenes from the Holy Land
    Buss, HJ

    Commissioned for the McCormick Duo and the 30th Anniversary of the National Flute Association. Percussion instruments (one player) include: Marimba, suspended cymbal, tambourine, bongos, wood block, wind chimes, and agogo bells.

    'The opening section, Masada presents angular solos against percussion accents, with ascending legato passages for the flute. The music turns more florid and Middle-Eastern in style before a peaceful coda. Storm on Mount Sinai offers sharply rhythmic music accented with tambourine and a more febrile bazaar-like flute writing. The Flock by the Sea of Galilee contains an oddly memorable five-note percussion motif under a lovely bucolic flute theme. The Road to Jerusalem makes a haunting finale with elaborate passages against pulsating percussion. Scenes from the Holy Land is an effective and colorful work with deftly varied music and tackled by the musicians with skill and understated virtuosity Buss intimate style requires. It makes its effects with point and economy and would be a boon to flute and percussion duos searching for program material.'

    Chamberlain, N

    Composed for Chamber Cartel, whose initial season Nonstop called for a concert each month for a year. Needless to say things would get a little crazy, and it was indeed a death cage match to the finish. This piece embodies that epic battle of completing such a season. Premiered on the last concert of the season, this piece highlights a classic brawl between two flutists and two percussionists. Four enter, but do four leave?

    Percussion includes: marimba, vibraphone, glockenspiel, 3 tom-toms, mounted sleigh bells, 2 suspended cymbals, and whip.

    Concerto Boriken

    Cordero, E

    The aboriginal name given to the island of Puerto Rico is Boriken. This concerto, which bears the same name, presents to us in its first two movements, I. Yocahu and Juracan and II. Taino Prayer, a sonoric vision of the Taino native culture. The third movement, titled III. Mestizaje (crossing of races) exposes a different musical-cultural conception. The generative element on this third movement emphasizes the European, Spanish and African heritages which predominate in contemporary Puerto Rico.

    In reduction form from flute (doubling piccolo) and full orchestra to flute (doubling piccolo), 2 percussionists (optional), and piano. For advanced players. Duration: 27.
