Lesvet Set'my, 17 texts by Anna Alchuk in 23 movements (2002) 17'

soprano solo; flute/ alto flute, oboe, clarinet/bass clarinet, violin, viola, cello, double bass

This is a so-called lyrical diary of so-called vanguard composer on vanguard lyrics by Russian poet.

Alchuk's micro-poems consist of words and half-words which link each other by syllabes and thus reveal ambiguous meanings. 23 movements can be played in any order, forming new fabula. In this performance they follow order set by the score. Pauses between movements are up to performers; they are an integral part of the work, so among 17 minutes of total duration "net music" takes 12.

Every tiny movement (from ten seconds up to a minute, average 20-30'') is written at a stroke of the pen. Some texts got different sound settings. It was a sort of exercise, as the most difficult thing is speaking the same in other words.

Premiere performance. February, 24, 2005 года, The Post Museum, St.Petersburg. Irina Anryakova, eNsemble cond. by Fedor Lednev (mp3, 20,4 MB)
