Product Description

•••••
Elegy for Antigone for Soprano Saxophone and Piano (2012) in based on Aeolian Mode and recasts music material borrowed from former compositions. The character of the piece is lyric-nostalgic-sentimental with dramatic outbursts, in a process to reflect Antigone’s tragic personality of the ancient Greek plays. Furthermore, the tone qualities of the specific instrumentation symbolically reinforce the antagonism between ‘ethos’ and ‘pathos’ – the two opposite poles that combine the myth of Antigone. On the other hand, the two saxophone cadenzas, the introductory and the intermediate, highlight the sonorous and technical flexibility the instrument. The piece is a transcription of an earlier piece under the same title written for oboe and piano.
