Works » By Title » C » Concerto Grosso I (15:00 / 1974)

Ted Dawson

“Concerto Grosso I” was created at the McGill University Electronic Music Studios during the composer's year of graduate studies in the Faculty of Music. There are two alternate performance versions: the original quadraphonic tape piece, and a later version that combines amplified instruments with electronic sound. This version is a stereo mix of the original quadraphonic tape. Structurally, the work has a neo-classical three movement form; but beyond the single traditional reference, it is principally concerned with the exploration of sound and the technical possibilities of the studio. Both concrete and synthetic sources are used, often combined from as many as six channels of prepared material. This work is available commercially on McGill University Records. Intended as a sound environment. Written for my wife Kalina Serlin as sounds for an urban apartment. TD
