Orchestration of full score for Music Theatre work 'Tales Of Nikolai Gogol' for premier live performance at the Clarence Street Theatre, Hamilton, Sat Feb 20 2016.
The original one act version (2012 - for rhythm section and strings) was expanded to two acts which comprised 41 separate scores. I collaborated with composer David Sidwell on appropriate instrumentation to score his piano and vocal scores and the final versions were orchestrated for Flute, Oboe, Clarinet, Trumpet, F Horn, Trombone, Piano and Keyboard 2, Guitar, Bass, Drums, soloists and and chorus.
I proposed the adoption of 2 'alter-ego' voices for the tormented character of artist Piskarev: solo violin depicts his romantic vision of "She" while an angst-ridden heavily distorted guitar depicts his anguish.
I was honoured to be asked to compose two pieces for the work: "Ti Sento Qui" for characters Princess Volkonskaya and Nikolai Gogol and "The Secret" sung by Pisarev's love interest "SHE".
NB. As the mp3 files are computer generated from Finale music software files the simulated vocal lines do not contain lyrics.
