Composed in late 2016, Andy Scott gave the world premiere of Westland in Holland at the Westland Saxophone Festival in January 2017.
Westland is an exploration of soundscapes that integrates carefully chosen multiphonics into the harmonic and melodic language, creating a musical journey that is at times fragile and at times robust. At the centre of the harmony are pivot notes that connect sections, whilst rhythmic tension and release is created almost as if notated rubato.
A virtuosic yet thoughtful work of six minutes duration.
Performance duration (approx): 6'00
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
