Silent Night - variations - Piano Trio
By Franz Gruber, arr. Nick Raspa
For piano trio
Includes score and parts
This piece is for B Flat Clarinet, Horn in F and Piano. The work was selected by "Access Contemporary Music" to be performed in a Chicago reading session by members of the contemporary music ensemble "Anaphora" and broadcast over the internet in February 2012. This atonal work has a total duration of 9 minute. The title makes reference to both the dodecaphonic movement in music from the early 20th Century and my immigrant family's immigration to the United States during the very early part of the 20th Century.
This serial piece was composed using 10 tone rows. Each instrument was assigned a separate tone row. Rows 1 - 3 comprise first section. Rows 4 - 6 comprise the second section beginning at measure 20. Rows 7 - 9 comprise the third section beginning at measure 41 and Rows 3, 6 & 10 comprise the final section beginning at measure 100. The algorithm used proper names with letters outside the 7 letter musical alphabet being converted using the numbers 1 - 7 in a recurring fashion. Musical letters were first considered natural with duplications in any particular tone row first lowered then raised. Any additional duplication was returned to the natural form. Octaves are considered the same as unison. There were no enharmonic accommodations made to the tone rows. ASCAP
