Chamber music

Ron Levy's chamber music ("Thinkling Music") is available from SMP Press 

The following works are in the process of being transferred to SMP Press:

Paradise Music

This adorable little trio for Clarinet, Marimba and Double Bass. Has lots of ostinati, a bit of jazz influence — and exquisitely enigmatic titles.

Nice Shirts (for Mixed Ensemble)

Okay, here we go ... this completely unique (because every performance will perforce be different) piece — a "Happening" really — is a conglomerate of controlled improvisation, audience interactivity, and "lo-tech" (think boom box. And overhead projector.) Composer supervision is highly recommended for future performances!

Quartet for Flute, Piano, Clarinet and Trombone

Derived and expanded from "Rockin' Viola", aka the Quartet for Viola, Piano, Clarinet and Bassoon of 1988

Quartet for Viola, Piano, Clarinet and Bassoon

Of 1988. See above.

Brief Medieval Fantasy

Written for the Da Capo Chamber Players. Brief. Whimsical.

Orchestra

Modigliani's Arm

This one starts perky! And then traverses a range of moods and themes. Wait for the wood block, pardner!

Pelican Song for soprano and orchestra

Follow the antics of this authentically ancient bird.

Breathless

A repeated "D" ostinato in the marimba starts this adventure at high speeds.

Dance Symphony

Quaint. Charming. A Renaissance quadrille, AND a fiddler on some rooftop, somewhere. Also a wedding!

Symphonic Suite

Bringing Bach into the Twentieth Century (but not THAT 20thC!)

Zephyr Dance

It's a fanfare, folks.

Concert Band

Who Killed the Red Baron?

Somber tones and high-flying aerial acrobatics, spinning to a peace-filled conclusion.

 

Electronic Music

 

Dancing Bears

It's not often that an audience will burst out laughing during an electronic music concert. It happened here.

Nightsounds

Motor boats in the dark. That's what I hear.

Orange Planet

Some say my best piece to date. I say that too.

 

Theater Music

"You may have the universe if I may have Italy" — Giuseppe Verdi

Twelfth Night Music

Period piece for 5 players + optional percussion

If I Ran The Zoo, Part II

Children's music, sponsored by Time Warner Cable, feat. Wayne Wayne, flute

 

 

Vocal Music

"Music and Poetry have ever been acknowledged Sisters,

which walking hand in hand support each other" — Henry Purcell

 

Three Songs for contralto, clarinet, cello, and piano:

  1. "Ah, Are You Digging On My Grave" (Thomas Hardy)

  2. "Song" (Esther Mathews)

  3. "spring is like a perhaps hand" (ee cummings)

Composed for Mary Lou Iauco-Bewley and players
