Guthrie: Neomedieval Suite for 2 Bassoons and Contrabassoon
By James Guthrie
For small ensemble
Includes score and parts
Neomedieval Suite - Duration: 11:43 Score: 10 pages, parts: 3 pages, 113 measures. In 5 movements. I. Canon a3 (by inversion and augmentation) II. Contrapunctus a3 III. Canon a2 (retrograde canon with a free voice) IV. Contrapunctus a3 V. Canon a3 (at the third and octave)
Programming: Great choice for a recital to show off your trio. Can be programmed as a whole or split up into individual movements. You could program just the canons (I. III. & V.), or just the contrapuncti (II & IV). These could also work well for presentation in church during Lent. One movement could be performed as a meditation each Sunday for the 5 Sundays before Easter - very effective! The music is at the intermediate level, and easily sight-readable by more advanced players - no rehearsal needed. The textures are very contrapuntal, so be ready to give and take expressively among the various lines of the trio.
