Cholê, 1975

Commissioned by: Arraymusic, with the assistance of the Ontario Arts Council


“… highly charged and well-crafted composition, of immense challenge to the virtuosity of the players.” Paul Bendzsa, The Evening Telegram (St. John’s), November 1, 1977


Cholê is the Greek word for ‘anger’ and the piece could be considered as a musical expression of that emotion, although only on an incidental level. All of the materials in the work is derived from the contents of the first few seconds of music, with the horn providing the most important material.

“In form, the work is an alternation between violent outburst and reflective calm. In turn, each of the five instruments is given a prominent role, either in solo or in combination with the other instruments.”
