Song Description

As the most restrictive form of counterpoint, a canon doesn?t leave much room for harmonic variation and runs the risk of becoming either boring or popular (or both)... unless it is loosened up a bit. In this canon, an angular chromatic melody is repeated three times by the string quartet. Between each repetition of the melody is a 3 bar interlude which modulates the melody up a half step. The oboe d?amore starts the melody in unison with the first violin (serendipitously producing a trumpet-like timbre). However, the oboe d?amore doesn?t wait for the strings to finish the modulating interlude, but charges ahead with a repetition of the melody in the original key. By the time the strings have repeated the melody three times, the oboe d?amore has repeated it four times. By the end, the strings have modulated twice, putting them a minor third above the oboe d?amore, but somehow it all works out.

Story Behind the Song

Why the oboe d?amore? I was originally thinking of the sonority of the English horn as in Swan of Tuonela, but its range wasn?t quite high enough to double the first violin on the first verse.
