Book of Memory Suite (Flute, Viola and Harp)
Book of Memory Suite (Flute, Viola and Harp) by Paul Lansky, Published by Carl Fischer.
Made possible by the Chamber Music America Classical Commissioning Program, with generous funding provided by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and the Chamber Music America Endowment Fund, Book of Memory is Lansky's conversation with music from the medieval, renaissance, baroque, classical, romantic, early-modern, and modern periods. These dialogs are sometimes obvious, sometimes not. Written for the Janus Trio, Book of Memory consists of seven movements preceded and connected by short interludes that comprise a setting of a poem by William Blake about memory. The seven main movements can also be performed as a group or individually, without the prelude and interludes.
