NEWS POST

Welsh-born composer, Hilary Tann now lives in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains in Upstate New York where she is the John Howard Payne Professor of Music at Union College, Schenectady. Her early musical studies were with Alun Hoddinott at the University of Wales, Cardiff, and with J. K. Randall at Princeton University, USA.
Her music continues to be influenced by her love of Wales and by her strong identification with the natural world. A deep interest in the traditional music of Japan has led to private study of the shakuhachi and guest visits to Japan, Korea, and China.
Numerous organizations have supported her work, including the Welsh Arts Council, New York State Council on the Arts, Meet The Composer, and National Endowment for the Arts.
Many works are available on CD from North/South Recordings, Channel Classics, Deux Elles, Albany Records, and others. Her music is published by Brichtmark Music, Inc., Rowanberry Music, and Oxford University Press. Ensembles that have commissioned and performed her works include the European Women’s Orchestra, Knoxville Symphony, North American Welsh Choir, Tenebrae, Presteigne Festival, American Guild of Organists, North American Saxophone Alliance, Louisville Symphony Orchestra, Women’s Philharmonic, Meininger Trio, Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod, BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, Thai Philharmonic, and KBS Philharmonic in Seoul, Korea.
Shakkei, a diptych for oboe solo and chamber orchestra, was premiered by oboist Jinny Shaw in the Presteigne Festival, August 2007, and has since been recorded (North/South Recordings) and performed with different soloists in Dublin, at the 2008 IAWM Congress in Beijing, in New York City, in Rio de Janeiro, in San Francisco, and at the 15th World Saxophone Congress in Bangkok, Thailand, with Susan Fancher, solo soprano saxophone, July 2009.

The cycle is unified by references to verses from the 11th-century plainsong sequence ‘Veni Sancte Spiritus’; in addition, each piece contains hints of hymns appropriate to each season. The work may be performed as a concert suite or individual movements may be used separately within church services.
Duration: whole suite 15 minutes. Advent: 3′20″ Lenten 3′40″, Whit 3′40″, Michaelmas 4′00″.

Instruments: any string, piano, viola, violin

Publisher: Rowanberry Music

Score PDF: on_ear_and_ear-pgs1-3-secure-5.pdf

Description: On Ear and Ear … takes its cue from the opening few measures of Milton Babbitt’s 1950 Composition for Viola and Piano. Heard in slow motion, there is something so tender about the timbral and registral choices in the first four measures and these become reference points for this hommage. The title is from Gerard Manley Hopkins’ sonnet, “The Sea and the Skylark”. The two “ears” become those of the composer and her mentor at Princeton (Milton Babbitt); the two instruments (piano and viola); and the sea (“low lull-off or all roar”) and lark (“his rash-fresh rewinded new-skeinèd score”). On Ear and Ear … was composed in June/July 2011 for the Perspectives of New Music / Open Space memorial tribute to Milton Babbitt. (Audio features Matthew Jones, vla; Annabel Thwaite, pno.)

BIOGRAPHY
Welsh-born composer, Hilary Tann now lives in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains in Upstate New York where she is the John Howard Payne Professor of Music at Union College, Schenectady. Her early musical studies were with Alun Hoddinott at the University of Wales, Cardiff, and with J. K. Randall at Princeton University, USA.
Her music continues to be influenced by her love of Wales and by her strong identification with the natural world. A deep interest in the traditional music of Japan has led to private study of the shakuhachi and guest visits to Japan, Korea, and China.
Numerous organizations have supported her work, including the Welsh Arts Council, New York State Council on the Arts, Meet The Composer, and National Endowment for the Arts.
Many works are available on CD from North/South Recordings, Channel Classics, Deux Elles, Albany Records, and others. Her music is published by Brichtmark Music, Inc., Rowanberry Music, and Oxford University Press. Ensembles that have commissioned and performed her works include the European Women’s Orchestra, Knoxville Symphony, North American Welsh Choir, Tenebrae, Presteigne Festival, American Guild of Organists, North American Saxophone Alliance, Louisville Symphony Orchestra, Women’s Philharmonic, Meininger Trio, Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod, BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, Thai Philharmonic, and KBS Philharmonic in Seoul, Korea.
Shakkei, a diptych for oboe solo and chamber orchestra, was premiered by oboist Jinny Shaw in the Presteigne Festival, August 2007, and has since been recorded (North/South Recordings) and performed with different soloists in Dublin, at the 2008 IAWM Congress in Beijing, in New York City, in Rio de Janeiro, in San Francisco, and at the 15th World Saxophone Congress in Bangkok, Thailand, with Susan Fancher, solo soprano saxophone, July 2009.

Duration: whole suite 15 minutes. Advent: 3′20″ Lenten 3′40″, Whit 3′40″, Michaelmas 4′00″.

Difficulty: High (professional)

Category: small chamber ensembles - 2 to 4 players, solo instrument with piano, solo string with piano

Instruments: any string, piano, viola, violin

Publisher: Rowanberry Music

Score PDF: on_ear_and_ear-pgs1-3-secure-5.pdf

Description: On Ear and Ear … takes its cue from the opening few measures of Milton Babbitt’s 1950 Composition for Viola and Piano. Heard in slow motion, there is something so tender about the timbral and registral choices in the first four measures and these become reference points for this hommage. The title is from Gerard Manley Hopkins’ sonnet, “The Sea and the Skylark”. The two “ears” become those of the composer and her mentor at Princeton (Milton Babbitt); the two instruments (piano and viola); and the sea (“low lull-off or all roar”) and lark (“his rash-fresh rewinded new-skeinèd score”). On Ear and Ear … was composed in June/July 2011 for the Perspectives of New Music / Open Space memorial tribute to Milton Babbitt. (Audio features Matthew Jones, vla; Annabel Thwaite, pno.)
