Pavane, Galliard and Variations - Rodney Sharman

Video:
Type:Video
Description:Pavane Galliard and Variations is a transcription for Standing Wave of keyboard works by William Byrd (ca. 1540-1623), particularly Pavana - the Earle of Salisbury, a "mash" of the two galliards which follow it, and A Ground. The pavane and galliard were typically paired together, as were these two by the composer. The former is a processional dance; the latter a "leaping" dance. I sang Byrd's music in choirs when I was a teenager, but came to know his keyboard music only recently, through the recommendation of musicologist David Metzer. In taking up Byrd's dances, I layer, fragment, extend, and colour the originals in the manner of a fantasia, another genre in which Byrd excelled. The first movement was written at the request of Arne Eigenfeldt and was performed by Standing Wave in May 2009 as part of a dance concert; the second and third movements were commissioned by Standing Wave through the generosity of the BC Arts Council and first performed in May 2010. The piece is dedicated to Standing Wave and David Metzer.

The piece was choreographed by James Kudelka in a piece for 1 female and 3 male dancers, Byrd Music.

After Truth - Rodney Sharman

Video:
Type:Video
Description:After Truth (1994) for Baroque flute and percussion (can be performed on modern flute. percussion: vibraphone, glockenspiel, suspended maraca, rainstick, chimes)

Alison Melville, Baroque flute, Richard Sack, percussion (studio recording, 2017)

After Truth consists of two pairs of two and three-part inventions for Baroque flute, vibraphone and glockenspiel, separated by coloured silences. It was my desire through invertible counterpoint and canons of all sorts to address the pursuit of truth in art in a world where truth, at best, is a dialectic, rather than an absolute. The title is taken from the philosophical writings of Mervyn Sprung. After Truth was commissioned by Strange Companions through the Canada Council. It is dedicated to composer John Rea on his fiftieth birthday.

Rodney Sharman - Opera Transcriptions: La Rondine, Turandot, Madama Butterfly

Description:Performed by Louise Bessette. Posted on youtube with the permission of the publisher, les productions d'Oz (Doberman-Yppan) and the performer, Louise Bessette.

Opera Transcriptions: La Rondine, Turandot, Madama Butterfly In 1989, I began a series of opera transcriptions for piano in response to Michael Finnissy's Verdi Transcriptions, a work which I greatly admire. The three Puccini transcriptions were written at the request of pianists Yvar Mikhashoff and Anthony de Mare, who selected the arias which serve as the basis of these short pieces: "La Canzone di Doretta", from La Rondine, "Nessun dorma", from Turandot, and "Tu, tu, piccolo iddio" from Madama Butterfly. Opera Transcriptions: La Rondine was first performed by Anthony de Mare at New Music Concerts in Toronto in 1992, Turandot was given its first performance in Ghent, Belgium by Anthony de Mare, and Madama Butterfly was first performed by Yvar Mikhashoff at the tenth Almeida Festival in London, UK.
