Catch (Paperback)Thomas Ades (composer)
- We can order this
Scored for the same instrumentation as Messiaen's Quatuor Pour la Fin du Temps, Thomas Ades' dazzlingly precocious Catch from 1991 has a theatrical element written into its very DNA: a pianist, a cellist and a violinist, seated on stage, fend off the attempts of a wandering clarinettist to join them... All the efforts are repelled, until the work's wistful yet quizzical ending. Bursting with rhythmic energy, this vivid nine-minute work showcases a young Ades' remarkable ingenuity and sense of musical drama.
