Description

for solo clarinet These five pieces are taken from A Picture of the World, a setting of excerpts from the Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus by Ludwig Wittgentstein. In the larger work they occur as interludes between the sections of vocal music. They provide musical commentary on the sung texts and a depiction of Wittgenstein's famously austere but forceful personality. Together they make an effective concert piece.show more

About Anthony Powers

Born in London in 1953, Anthony Powers studied at Oxford, in Paris with Nadia Boulanger, and at York with David Blake and Bernard Rands. He taught for two years at Dartington College of Arts before being appointed Composer-in-Residence to Southern Arts. Since then he has moved to Herefordshire where he continues to divide his time between composing and teaching, currently at Cardiff University, where he has been Professor of composition since 2004. Powers's music is characterized by strong architectonic frameworks that support a language of poetic intensity and magical sonorities. His music often takes its inspiration from the tension between different states, be they physical properties, landscapes, seasons or emotions.show more
