Ricercare una melodia is an ingenious work for solo trumpet and tape delay from the mid 1980s by Jonathan Harvey, where takes the literal meaning of Ricercare - `to seek' - as the inspiration for its structure. It unfolds as two fivepart canons: the first frenetic, twittering and rowdy; the second, where the canon is progressively augmented, more luminous and contemplative. A characterful and concise masterpiece from one of the visionaries of Electro- Acoustic Music.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"The ensuing web of melody at first intertwined with the trumpet in close canon, and then - by the device of running some of the tape tracks at half-speed - plunged far below the trumpet's plangent incantation: an effect that was both cogent and beautiful."

Malcolm Hayes, Daily Telegraph, 11 September 1989
