A Tedious Brief Scene: Bottom's Dance

Parts Only
In Stock


A Tedious Brief Scene: Bottom’s Dance (2011) is a fine example of Holmes’ work from her career as a composer and educator in New Zealand for over 25 years. Holmes was inspired to depict the character Bottom from Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night?s Dream in writing this lighthearted work. It is highly engaging and energetic with elements of minimalist techniques of layered melodic ostinati, and jazz-influenced and non-tonal harmony.

Like the character and scene from Shakespeare’s play, the music oscillates between moments of poignancy and boisterous self-confidence. It incorporates a variety of accented rhythmic patterns, changing metres and delicate melodic material, which gives pianists an opportunity to demonstrate their individual and combined talents as a chamber ensembles. It is suitable for performance by secondary students of approximately Grade VIII and above (ABRSM / Trinity).

It is now available for purchase as a study score and/or performance set (parts only). This listing is the performance set of parts only.
