2 RICERCARES op40 for string orchestra
TWO RICERCARES for string orchestra Op. 40 (1983) Duration: about 8 minutes. �Ricercare� means �to seek out� and usually applies to an elaborate contrapuntal instrumental composition, a kind of freely written complex fugue or canon. Here are two such ricercares. The first is a 13-part double mirror canon. The second is a 13-part double fugue with retrograde and mirrored motion � it moves backwards with inversion after bar 58. This fugue is based on a twelve-tone theme constructed from a chain of growing intervals. The both pieces are scored for a string orchestra divided into 6 groups: three first Violins, two second Violins, two third Violins, three Violas, two Celli and one Double bass (as minimum). The composition was commissioned by the �Ricercare� Orchestra from Tula town. It was completed on 12th of January 1983 in Moscow, and premiered on 11th of April 1983 in the �House of Composers� in Moscow by the Orchestra of Ministry of Culture USSR conducted by Vladimir Ponkin.
