Brief Medieval Fantasy
Brief Medieval Fantasy - Ron Levy
Flute • Clarinet • Cello • Violin • Piano
This piece explores the interplay between medieval devices such as the "Landini Cadence", parallel-fifth harmony, and Estampie dance rhythms, with 20th-Century elements including roving chromaticism, eerie timbral effects, and aleatoric passagework.
The piece was composed for Elaine Barkin's graduate composition seminar, and was read and workshopped with the Da Capo Chamber Players.
