Brass band

Between light and dark is inspired by the early baroque opera L’Orfeo, composed by Claudio Monteverdi in 1609. This opera tells the story of the greek legend Orpheus and his attempt to bring his dead bride Eurydice back to the living world. The composition contains some musical quotes from L’Orfeo. These quotes have a ritornello function in the form of this work. Other (because of the opera’s libretto) related topics, come from Ancient Greek music and the opera’s story (libretto); resulting in the use of tetrachord structured gestures, polymetric functions and tone clusters.
