Quote from: classicalgeek on May 25, 2023, 10:42:52 AMAfter two relatively easy mystery scores on my part, maybe this one will be a bit more challenging? We'll see...
Quote from: classicalgeek on May 25, 2023, 09:59:30 AMCould it be Hans Werner Henze? He fits the first and third of your criteria, and the second if you consider Germany 'occupied'. He also wrote several important works for guitar, most notably Royal Winter Music.Not sure this is it... but maybe?
Quote from: Luke on May 25, 2023, 11:08:41 AMLooks a bit like Petterson in some ways, but I don't know
Quote from: Karl Henning on May 25, 2023, 10:10:36 AMI believe Schoenberg's Serenade, Op. 24 includes guitar.
Quote from: krummholz on May 25, 2023, 12:53:57 PMAlso Webern's Op. 18 songs, for voice, E-flat clarinet, and guitar.
Quote from: BWV 1080 on May 25, 2023, 01:20:32 PMcompleting the trinity, doesnt Wozzeck have a guitar part?
Quote from: Luke on May 26, 2023, 06:03:41 AMThe guitar one - is it actually from a solo work, as it appears. Or is this part of a larger work with other instruments. Because - given the clues you've given - it's a bugger to pin down!
Quote from: Luke on May 26, 2023, 06:01:30 AMStill not completed my 'location' series (which includes 'Mystery meanderings' as I hadn't decided on the locations theme when I posted that one!). SO far we have:Mystery meanderings #aka locations #0 - Holst - ?? - surprised this hasn't been snaffled, it's one of his most famous and best pieces.Mystery location - Vaughan Williams Symphony 9 Mystery location 2Mystery location 3 - Vaughan Williams Symphony 5Mystery location 4 - Bax - TintagelMystery location 5 - Vaughan Williams Symphony 3Mystery location 6 - Elgar - Symphony 2When it comes to the symphonies I have posted from the parts which are relevant to the location.
Quote from: Luke on May 24, 2023, 02:41:52 PMThe same (personal) connection with this one, plus a more obvious one to one of my last scores.
Quote from: amw on May 26, 2023, 08:21:04 AMIt's Koechlin - The Jungle Book
Quote from: amw on May 26, 2023, 08:21:04 AMHolst is presumably Egdon Heath but I don't know what "mystery location 2" might be.
Quote from: amw on May 26, 2023, 08:21:04 AMI also know nothing about the guitar literature; my guess would have been Petrassi but that seems to have been shot down already.
Quote from: BWV 1080 on May 26, 2023, 08:53:13 AMHere is another mystery score, related to the guitar example. It an opening solo line from a famous orchestral work
Quote from: BWV 1080 on May 25, 2023, 04:39:57 AMThe composer of my score was from a country that was a major participant in WW2, lived for a few years in an occupied country and then briefly served in his country's army toward the end of the war but fortunately did not see combat
Quote from: classicalgeek on May 26, 2023, 09:05:31 AMThat looks a lot like Elliott Carter... though he doesn't fit this:
Quote from: Luke on May 26, 2023, 09:46:08 AMHill Runes. Maxwell Davies. I feel like a melon if so. That score does not look like Maxwell Davies!
Quote from: BWV 1080 on May 26, 2023, 09:49:33 AMNope, not English composer
Quote from: Luke on May 26, 2023, 01:53:46 PM- it was played at his funeral.
Quote from: MusicwebHill Runes was written for Julian Bream with five movements or sections that each refer to lines of poetry by George Mackay Brown. This is a work, filled with remarkably skilful writing for guitar, though its tradition steps away consciously from Spanish traditions of playing, looking more towards the counterpoint of the lute music, which is more a product of British names such as John Dowland. Angular but deeply expressive, this is not really Dowland-esque in its effect, though the longer Adagio molto does seem to be searching comparable emotional realms of love and loss. this is the bit I didn't read... Staying with Sean Shibe's superlative guitar playing, the Farewell to Stromness, a deservedly popular transcription of a cabaret piece originally for piano, is a tune that Maxwell Davies said he would be content to be remembered by. Given the context here it can't help but bring a tear to the eye, as it was the only music played at Maxwell Davies's funeral. Farewell indeed.
