Stick Dance III (1992)
Stick Dance III was composed in 1992 for the Zanfonia Trio, for performances
as part of the Park Lane Group concerts in London in January 1993. The
work is scored for clarinet, violin and piano and revisits and develops
the material from the earlier Stick Dances. In each Stick Dance the sinewy
clarinet line is the main focus of attention.
Several factors can make Stick Dance III quite elusive to the listener:
the alternation of lyricism with sudden rhythmic excitement, the use of
quartertones in the clarinet part and a sense of a tempo that is fast
and slow at the same time. An analogue for the listener is to consider
that the music is played and danced on one hilltop whilst it is seen and
heard from another. The effects of wind and cloud can make the music sometimes
clear and sharp, sometimes tranquil and distant.
