Udow-Moon Shadows (Piano reduction) (SP)-solo V/ chromatic gongs/almglocken/P/PN - Product Information

Moon Shadows by Michael Udow is a concerto for multiple percussion. This piece is available with three different accompaniments: Wind Ensemble, Orchestra, and Piano Reduction. This piece is a series of main melodic themes based on ten Japanese haiku about the moon, which are unveiled throughout the composition. Contrapuntal lyrical lines were then superimposed over those initial melodies. The overall orchestration is intentionally transparent, reflecting the clarity of the haiku form. Subtle shifts in timbre further "reflect" and "amplify" the meaning of these "Pierrotesque" images. Yet, the depth within the orchestration is, at times, rather cloudy an ominous.
