Programme Note:

Larry Lake

Filar il Tuono, 1992

Commissioned by:


Filar il Tuono or ‘filer le son’ is a term used in 18th century vocal music. Simply put, it is an indication to ‘spin the tone.’ (...) What it means to me is... a sort of ‘moderation in all things.’

“So, I wrote a simple piece. The structure is obvious, but it is very difficult to perform. Instruments are often in canon at the rhythmic interval of a sixteenth note. The dynamics and rhythms are difficult to co-ordinate. (...) Simplicity is a virtue, but it’s not always easy, for either composer or performer.”



Premiere Information:
Hemispheres Orchestra, Toronto, November 9, 1989
May 31, 1992, Canadian Museum of Nature, Ottawa; Pierrot Ensemble.
