The musical compositions of Richard Burdick

Opus 155b

September Summer, 2013
for flute, clarinet and horn

(Friday 13, September 2013)

This work was revised and completed in September 2013; here in Regina, SK Canada. We are having the most beautiful weather. It what I would hope for year round, but it’s September, which I seldom think of as a summer month; thus the title.

Construction:

This work is not an I Ching Scale based work. In my I Ching scale works, I usually limit myself to only the seven or eight tones of the scale. When I allow myself the freedom of no key, I enjoy not being in any key very much. Part of the playfulness of this work is it free flowing tonality.

I started with a happy and flashy motif in a pentatonic scale, and developed this work freely letting it float around where it wanted to go.

Movement two is based on the melody that is created from the polyphony of movement one measure seven through fifteen.

Movement three is a joyous presentation of the “emergent melody” from movement one measures twenty-five and twenty-six. The movement gets to the point where I didn’t want to decide what key to be in, and I think that’s okay.

“This CD proves that what may have sounded weird sixty years ago now sounds normal and often beautiful.”

There are many lesser-known 20th century composers, who have great worth!

Let’s not forget the music of:
Wendell Otey
Alan Hovhaness
Henry Cowell
Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco
Gunther Schuller.
