    *Contemporary Piece.* Fascinating and rhythmically complex sextet, with lots of swapping of instruments inspired by Cipriano de Rore~~~~~s madrigal Anchor che col partire but very much a modern deconstruction. D

    OMP142 Luigi Antonio Irlandini, Partita.

    Works for large recorder ensembles seems to be very fashionable these days. Irlandini's Partita, a difficult and densely dissonant composition, was written for two professional groups (a quartet and a duo) from Amsterdam. The composer lists Cipriano de Rore's madrigal "Anchor che col partita" as fundamental source material, though even the most informed listener would surely have a hard time making that connection. An elaborate explanation of the borrowed material and how it was used is given in the preface to the edition.

    More obvious and memorable is the wide range of sound Irlandini obtains from the six players by having them double on various sizes of recorders from soprano to contra bass.

    Irlandini uses staggered and highly irregular entrances, each marked with an accent. When put in the context of a continually more c omplex web of sound, dissonant harmony, and extremely complex rhythmic configurations, these are very hard to pull off.
