    Close to the Sun - Peter Meechan

    "You know, I've never understood the idea of "perfect". But then I also don't know what "normal" means either. At least with "perfect" you can understand that it is reaching for something – although, in truth, it should never, and will never, be attainable: it doesn't exist. It's the wrong word. It's the wrong meaning.But if I can at least understand the idea of trying to reach "perfection", "normal" is the most redundant word I can think of. Very few people truly want to be "normal" – no one strives for normal. And even if they do, do they really have a notion that the concept of "normal", which just like "perfection" – at least to my mind – doesn't exist?We are all different. We are all unique. Maybe the only thing that is truly unifying about any of us is that we are all broken – we aren't "normal", and we will never, ever, be "perfect".No one personified this in my lifetime more than Freddie Mercury. I remember him dying and remember crying almost uncontrollably at his death – I was young, not even a teenager, but looking back I honestly don't know if my tears were because a hero had died, or that I understood the tragedy of how someone so brilliant, yet so flawed, could leave us here on earth.Nothing articulates the way I felt better than the last song the three remaining members of Queen recorded: "No One But You (Only the Good Die Young)". A tribute to Freddie, and "all those who die too soon", the line "They're only flyin' too close to the sun" (presumably a reference to Icarus, who in Greek mythology had wings made of wax, and perished after flying too close to the sun, despite warnings not to from his father) provides the title of this work.Opening with a "perfect" 5th, Close to the Sun is orchestrated in such a way that we will never hear a true, perfect, 5th. The twochords in the winds – simple and beautiful – soon develop, and become something different, something changed. Those chords, and their development, never lose their origins, but do alter – do become something different. Not normal, not perfect, but existing in their own beautiful way.Close to the Sun was commissioned by a consortium of schools, universities, organizations, and conductors, led by RobertAmbrose and Georgia State University, and is dedicated "from RJA and PM to Ellie – in memory of Dylan"PM – November 2018Commissioners:Georgia State University (Robert Ambrose), University of Alberta (Angela Schroeder), University of Manitoba(Jacquie Dawson), Bishop Lloyd Middle School (Anya Pogorelova), Esther Starkman School (Jeff Bryant), Vincent Massey Collegiate (Matt Abraham), Kevin Willms, Westwinds Music Society (Kevin Willms), Music Mentors International (Kevin Willms)

    Journey to the Centre of the Earth Wind Band Set (Score & Parts)

    This composition was based on the world-famous novel by the French author Jules Verne. This novel describes the attempt to reach the centre of the earth. The descent of the crater of the volcano called Snaeffels, situated in Iceland, marks the beginning of this voyage to the sublunary world. The German geologist, professor Lidenbrock, is accompanied on this trip by his nephew Axel and an Icelandic guide named Hans. The last mentioned will be helpful in many occasions. Dark colors & mist The composer tried in this single work to give a musical expression to various significant moments from this novel. In the introduction he sketches an image of the dismal ambience on the island by using dark colors. Rising fragments of mist reveal the flanks of the monumental mountain Scataris. The composer tries to catch this image in a majestic and broad chorale. Away from Iceland Subsequently the ostinato rhythmicity and virtuosity represent the hectic descent of the crater of the volcano. The party descends ever more and more and travels south, away from Iceland. On the way, they see all kinds of rock formations, fossils and minerals. At a depth of thirty hours walking distance, at about 150 kilometers below the surface, they reach a sub terrestrial sea which is called the Lidenbrock sea. Genuine eruption of sounds Strange electric manifestations and unpredictable weather conditions accompany this singular phenomenon. An orchestral tutti-episode expresses this impression musically. On a make-shift raft, the party continues its voyage, heading to the south coast of this huge sea. Once ashore, an enormous rock obstructs the passage. The blowing up of this obstacle unleashes a genuine eruption of sounds in the orchestration. Spat out by the volcano But the explosion has an unforeseen side effect. The sea - travelers and raft included - is sucked upwards into a dark hole. Again, our heroes are accompanied on their involuntary voyage, while left to fend for themselves, by an ever increasing ostinato rhythmicity. Before an irruption can destroy the raft, the threesome manages to escape and climb up through a cave towards the daylight. They seem to be spat out by the Stromboli volcano on the island of Sicily, far from home. The composition ends with triumphant sounds that represent the scientific triumph of these adventurers. 22:00
