Re:pair (Score & Parts)-FL/BSN

Composer: Shapiro, Alex

Publisher: Alex Shapiro

Edition: AS02


for flute and bassoon
by Alex Shapiro (b. 1962)- American composer


Much of Re:pair was inspired by the meters and modality of early music, and I had fun breaking some moldy rules against parallel motion in the recurring theme of bouncy fifths. The duo begins tranquil and paired and gradually journeys toward moments of isolation, urgency and bitonal conflict before once again pairing up and ending sweetly. Between the gentle bookends of the beginning and the end of the piece, the music strives to repair the musical syntax of lines that occasionally break down harmonically and rhythmically.
