composition

The Path of the Archangel : Elegy for strings / Nestor Taylor

Publisher's number: 21413
Genre: Orchestra
Subgenre: String orchestra
Scoring: str
Duration: 14'00"
Year of composition: 1996
Status: fully digitized (real-time delivery)

Description:
The Path of the Archangel was written in London in 1996, at a time of a more conscious return to a tonal idiom, with a strong lyrical character. The form of the work is fictional in that it unfolds gradually, following a free motivic development that is based more on associative correlations than on precise repetitions.
The solo role of the violin enhances the narrative character of the composition, with its ever-increasing engagement in the course of musical discourse. Thus, "pushed by its strange passion", the solo violin finally reaches the point of being detached from the rest of the orchestra and, now redeemed, "raised to the seventh heaven", it touches through its song "the midnight where sleep sweetly rests the worldly, under the mystery of infinite silence ", as the poet would say.
