Ghost Train for Flute, Bassoon and Piano
- Interesting, worth a look
From the Publisher
Ghost Train for flute, basson and piano was commissioned in 2013 by the Los Angeles based concert series Chamber Music Palisades.
The 10 minute piece's name refers to so called ghost notes which are prevalent throughout the composition.
Ghost notes are performed with "negative accents" (they are softer than their preceding and subsequent notes), and often with incomplete sound production. They are frequently used in jazz, and also in other kinds of music by percussion instruments such as the snare drum.
There is a good amount of 'travelling music' in this piece, therefore it's title - GHOST TRAIN
Performance duration (approx): 10'
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
