Ian Farquhar, A taste of Africa (2008)

A Taste of Africa comprises of four pieces. Each of those is composed as an impression of places that the composer visited in South Africa. The African, Zulu, Indian and British traditions are depicted. The first movement tells the story of a traditional Zulu wedding ceremony with chanting and dancing. The second movement recalls a Boma camp fire in a nature reserve with many wild animals nearby. ‘Zimbali walk’ is the name of movement three. It refers to an area in the neighbourhood or Durban, where an abundance of wildlife thrives. The last movements is ‘the rocky road to Lesotho’. This composition is a melting pot of styles and atmospheres and the duration is over ten minutes. The scoring is Sopranino down to Contrabass.

Soeren Sieg, Ububele (2017)

Ububele means “kindness” in Xhosa language. I wrote this piece for my first recorder workshop in Lyme Regis in February 2017. I used the opportunity to write something smooth and relaxed that totally relies on the sound qualities of the low recorders; the highest part of the whole Suite is a single alto recorder. The first movement, “Amaza (waves)”, is especially smooth and relaxed and is in my favourite 12/8 time. This piece should be played in a really groovy way, especially the main theme. The second movement, “She's still there” is very emotional. It is about a deep love and longing, and for sure the longest melody I have ever written. Imagine you are walking along an endless shore and looking to the horizon on a clear, sunny day – and then play the melody with exactly this breath and feeling.
The third movement has a special place in my heart. “Fa wo do yi mame” is Twi, a language spoken around Accra, and it means “Give me your love”. The first 19 bars can be sung, by some or all members of the ensemble, or played. The expression is, as in most of my third movements, pure joy.
