Instrumentation freestyle: 
Solo Trumpet in C Trumpet II in C (offstage) 1 Percussionist: Tubular Bells (Chimes) Tam-Tam Bass Drum Piano Violin Viola Violoncello

Carving Space for Sound is a "modular" work, in that it can be performed in two versions. It may be either a work for solo trumpet, or for trumpet plus ensemble of six players. In the solo version, the trumpet plays only the material on p. 1, up to the double bar on that page. In the ensemble version, the work commences with the same solo, but then continues to the end of the score.

Settimana Ljubljana (Ljubljana Vignettes)

Composer: 
Daniel Perlongo
Instrumentation freestyle: 
fl, cl, tbn, perc (1), pf, vla, vcl

The composer writes: I composed Settimana Ljubljana (Ljubljana Vignettes) for Ensemble MD7, and dedicate it to Majda and Pavel Mihelcic, who introduced me, so graciously, to a panorama of Slovenia, some of the many beauties and wonders to which I refer in this composition. My work utilizes an isorhythm, which here consists of a succession of three rhythmic subdivisions: 1) sextuplets, leading into 2) quadruplets, and succeeded by 3) a dotted rhythm. From the first phrase and throughout the entire work, this succession of subdivisions acts as a unifying device over which variations are heard. The variations are in seven continuous movements or vignettes – brief evocative, musical episodes: 1) Through the Julian Alps is introduced by a snare drum roll; 2) Kanal Concert begins with the entrance of the bongos; 3) Tartini al Piran sounds a tuning “A” in the piano; 4) the tam-tam and a long tone in the trombone signals Ljubljanski grad – Castle Hill; 5) the bongos return for Ljubljanica Promenade – River Walk;   6) very soft chords in the piano bring in Pletna Ride; and 7) three bell chimes evoke the island setting of Church Bell on Lake Bled.
