March Salon previews

Sean Osborn

“The Setzer/Ziefel Duo commissioned me to write a duet for two bass clarinets that would showcase their full four-octave range and wide palette of sounds available from this extremely versatile instrument. Four Moods fully explores extreme emotions through expression with an astonishing array of dynamics and colors.”

“I will be presenting two pieces for piano and toy piano duo: Western States Pictorial and Crossing Parallel Lines. Both compositions draw on imagery and narrative to take the listener on a sonic journey. I find that the toy piano and piano look interesting together on a stage and I really enjoy the way they sound in ensemble. Crossing Parallel Lines will be premiered at the March salon.”

“The prelude and fugue in F-sharp Major for solo guitar are fairly short. The tone of the pieces and the key were inspired by Olivier Messiaen's Vingt regards sur l'enfant-Jésus. The prelude is pretty short and full of false relations inside a laconic march-chorale. The fugue is in just two voices but features invertible counterpoint, as well as a middle entry in which the subject and countersubject appear in inversion and a short canonic stretto.”

Marcin Pączkowski and Neil Welch

The short work will feature Pączkowski's custom-made gloves with accelerometers. The devices send wireless signals to a computer where the sound can be manipulated in real-time by both performers.

Salon Hiatus

Hello Friends of the Seattle Composers' Salon, I just wanted to put up this post for those who might visit this site... The Salon is taking a short hiatus, but will be back in 2019 with new events and some new ideas. We appreciate all of your support over the years, and we want to thank John Teske for his wonderful curation for the past few years. John is stepping down as curator, and we will be working on a new direction for the Salon in the coming months.
