Choral Improvisations

Merenyi, Margareta

About the work

This piece was composed with an educational objective and consists of three movements, each bringing a different improvisatory element to the piece. The first movement, entitled ‘Scattered Canon’, consists of fragments of melodies, rhythmic ideas and sounds. This movement encompasses many interesting polyphonic and polymetric combinations of these fragments. The second movement, entitled ‘Moving Canon’ creates an immersive sound experience for both the choir and audience by including a spatial dimension in the form of movement. The third movement, entitled ‘Circle Canon’, is entirely graphic in nature and allows singers to interpret the score within certain limitations. Education, improvisation and performance are blended in this versatile piece which is suitable for musicians of all levels
