Composer's note, January 2011:  

As I set about to compose this salute to the New England Music Camp in celebration of its seventy-fifth anniversary, I couldn’t help thinking of America’s first truly modern composer, Connecticut’s son, Charles Ives. 

Ives gave birth in his iconoclastic music to musical concepts that were completely original - sometimes outrageously daring and complex. Though I avoided the temptation to tip my hat in some musical way to Ives, he was often in my thoughts as I composed. Perhaps because Ives makes strong references to the New England transcendentalists - Emerson, Whitman, Thoreau

- in his Essay Before a Sonata, the specters of those philosophers were also running through my head.

My tone poem opens with a quiet starlit night. Several moods follow, each more energetic than the one before. Ultimately, the climax is reached in an energetic fugato section. Suddenly, all motion is suspended for several seconds, and gradually the opening scenes return, only in reverse order.

FIGMENTS AND FRAGMENTS

Composer: 
Lawrence Dillon
Scoring: 
2.2.2.2 - 2.2.1.0 – perc, pno, strings

Ensemble Type

Part of the composer's Schuman Trilogy, Figments & Fragments is an orchestral fantasy, often performed as a stand-alone piece.

Based on the enigmatic figure of Robert Schumann – a brilliantly gifted composer and writer who ascended to the pinnacle of the music world, only to end his days in an insane asylum.  The work starts with a favorite form of Schumann’s – a set of linked character pieces –gradually allowing the cracks between the pieces to expand and overwhelm the narrative.  The piece ends with chilling evocation of the composer’s final paralysis.

It was a consortium commission for the Robert Schumann Bicentennial by the Idyllwild Arts Academy, the Boise Philharmonic, the University of Utah, the Salt Lake Symphony and the Mansfield Symphony.
