Peter Hannan: RSRCH 12/84 - Dream by Susanne Fröhlich published on 2019-11-16T12:54:09Z This piece is part of a series of several solo instrumental pieces from the 1980s called RSRCH. In these pieces the Canadian composer and recorder player Peter Hannan focused on one specific aspect of new instrumental playing techniques. RSRCH 12/84 is written for a tenor recorder and completely dedicated to multiphonics, exploring their quality, strength, and fragility. In the beginning of the piece the multiphonics are introduced carefully. The main part plays with rapid virtuosic changes, from natural sounds to multiphonics and back again. This creates a polyphony on a monophonic instrument in such a fascinating way that it puts both audience and performer into a kind of trance. Thus, also the subtitle Dream.
