Dietrich Schnabel, Sinfonietta (2008)

Sinfonietta offers a broad sound spectrum of the recorder orchestra, beautiful “earworm” melodies, challenging rhythms, meter changes and explores all chromatic notes on the recorder. It is scored for Sn S S AA TT BB, Greatbass, Contrabass.
The German composer and conductor Dietrich Schnabel wrote this Sinfonietta in 2008 for the Northern Recorder Course. It's a marvellous work in three movements in typical Schnabel style, with hints of the Romantic period and with interesting parts for all the instruments. The first movement is a refined mix of rondo and sonata form and is dominated by a rising chordal theme and a thriving motive of dotted notes. In between the presentations of the theme all the parts have a short solo, in either a romantic or jazz-like style. The second movement starts with a contrabass solo in lyrical fashion and grows gradually into a full-sound, brisk in 13/8 time. Allthough it starts off heavily and in peace, the third movement is a festivity of musical fireworks with barely any 'time to breathe'. This sinfonietta has a running time of about 24 minutes (!) and is by far the shortest piece of this type that Schnabel has written.
