Macbeth: Descriptive drama for harpsichord

John BloodGZ075
Harpsichord | Grades 6–8 technical level | Duration: 23 minutes

An instrumental drama which portrays the events, settings and characters of the Shakespeare play. In ten contrasted pieces which skilfully exploit the harpsichord’s varied registers, we hear Macbeth’s encounter with the witches, his dark broodings, and Lady Macbeth’s wily powers of persuasion – an increasingly manic Valse diabolique. The growing mayhem eventually leads to the appearance of Banquo’s ghost, and Macbeth’s defeat at the hands of Macduff. Vivid, spooky and exciting.

Dreamsong

Giles SwayneGZ094
Trumpet and piano | Grades 7-8 technical level | Duration: 4 minutes

Dreamsong is the second movement of Sangre viva (GZ 015). The mood is derived from a poem by Federico Garcia Lorca called Sueño – a poem about time, eternity and oblivion:

My heart rests by the cool fountain.
(fill it with your threads,
Spider of oblivion)

Dreamsong is published independently of its parent work because on its own it is highly suitable for recital programmes and for teaching purposes.

John BloodGZ095
Cello and piano | Grades 1-3 technical level | Duration: 18 minutes

This composer being an accomplished cellist, these pieces show an intimate understanding of the problems and possibilities of the instrument at this level.

  • A frisky asteroid
  • The lonely planet
  • The eight moons of Neptune
  • Orion’s Nebula
  • Helios Hyperion – The jolly sun god
  • Cygmus X-26 – The laughing satellites
