YCS014 Matilda Pamment The Revellers Enter... for two treble recorders and drum

The Revellers enter... in 7/8 time and a lively entrance it is too !

This piece, for two treble recorders and drum, is published in the Orpheus Music, Young Composers Series. It is composed by Matilda Pamment, a young Australian recorder player who is studying with Zana Clarke and who plays with the young recorder group Batalla Famossa.

The piece opens with an insistent rhythm of 12,12,123 moving to a second section in which the 1st treble plays a 123,12,12 rhythm against the original rhythm. The drum enters at bar 32, and although its part is written throughout, there is freedom to elaborate on the percussion part at the performer's discretion. The central sections are slower and rhythmically more steady before returning to the original 7/8 for the closing section.

The piece has a Renaissance feel but is written in a modern idiom and possibly was inspired by Matilda's involvement in the National Shakespeare Festival. It certainly would be a lively interlude for a Shakespeare play.
