Description:
Program note (English): Scaramuccia, composed in 1968-69, was my first composition, and first commission, for a large group of players in which there were no jazz musicians. It seems evident to me that years of activity with jazz music have left their trace on my work in other fields. Perhaps the tutti for wind form (page 17 of the score of Scaramuccia) is an example of this.
Although it is my view that a composer's annotations for his own work scarcely enlighten the listener, even if they are not a verbal smoke-screen, I should like to consider more deeply one detail which strikes me as being the most personal in this work. It is what I should like to call the poly-motoric cluster in the strings from page 33 of the score. This arises by placing the interval combination of 4 notes, on which the whole piece is constructed, in 6 layers in such a way that a chromatic field of 24 notes is formed. Each layer has its own tempo and rhythmic patterns related to Morse code signals. It is the dynamic element (crescendo-decrescendo) which independently determines here which layer is heard audibly. It becomes consequently a lighthouse-in-the-dark effect which lasts nearly two minutes. Everything is present, but only a constantly changing section is perceptible. - THEO LOEVENDIE
