Programme Note:
Scales of Joy and Sorrow by Marjan Mozetich was composed specifically for the Gryphon Trio through the generous assistance of the Ottawa Chamber Music Society and Roger D. Moore. It was premiered at the Ottawa Chamber Music Festival on July 25, 2007.
The work is essentially based on the simple ingrediences of scales and an undulating accompaniment, plus a short melodic turn which is introduced by the violin very close to the beginning. It is an upward skip of a 3rd followed by a downward 2nd before decending which becomes the third vital theme throughout. All these basic materials are spun through a series of 5 distinct sections forming a structural geometric pattern of A1 (slow) B1 (fast) C (moderate arabesque) B 2(fast) A 2(slow). These continuous sections go through a voyage of emotional changes from the contemplative to the agitated, from reflection to action, from sweet sorrow to frantic joy.
Commissioned by: Gryphon Trio
