Echo : for Soprano and Horn
by May Lyon (2018)
Echo is a slightly theatrical piece, playing on perception. The soprano is the "echo", with the horn being the "original voice". As time is running backwards, the echo is heard first. However, as the two become closer, the delay shortens, until both are in unison.
Instrumentation: Soprano, horn (if performed with score, multiple music stands required for Soprano).
Duration: 4 min.
Difficulty: Advanced — Extended techniques; theatrical elements; use of International Phonetic Alphabet
Commission note: Commissioned by Ensemble Goldentree for International Women's Day 2018
