WANDERING FROM CLIME TO CLIME | Faro [Archive]
Regular Programme

#OAOrquestra

 

Wandering from clime to clime is a concerto for accordion and chamber orchestra. The title is taken from Alexander Pope’s translation of the Odyssey (1725) and was chosen to reflect the journey that the music makes to integrate an instrument that is often associated with popular music or dance – or even the Paris underground! – into a contemporary classical world.

There are four movements: the first three become progressively faster; then, after a cadenza, the last is the slowest and the longest.

The concerto is based on a single melodic idea that, with various transformations, provides the musical material for the whole work.

Wandering from clime to clime is dedicated to Gonçalo Pescada who some ten years ago completed a doctorate on contemporary music for the accordion under supervision of Christopher Bochmann conductor.
