Saylor: The Hunting Of The Snark; An Agony In Eight Fits

Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
Maurice Saylor's setting of Lewis Carroll's The Hunting of the Snark is written for a chorus and 'Snarkestra', Saylor's word for his quirky, misfit pit-band. This includes all manner of percussion and woodwinds, as well as such exotica as harmonica, bass accordion and washtub, instruments"reviled by society at large", in Saylor's words. To the nonsense text he brings a riot of colour and wit as well as a series of traditional devices such as refrains, sea chanties, and a chorale. The result is music of vibrancy, excitement, and even dangerous volatility. The three silent film scores are pacey, dapper and splendidly jazzy.
