The “now” and the “then” refer to the two different musical characters that permeate the whole piece. The “now” theme is forceful, somewhat angular, and has a touch of “Hindemith” in its design. The “then” theme is unabashedly tonal, complete with tonic pedal and root position dominant. The variations are both traditional (the “then” approach to variation form) in that each clearly delineated section has a new sort of approach to the thematic material, and non-traditional (the “now” approach) in that the two characters increasingly influence each other, intermix, and intertwine. Is now so different from then? Now cannot exist without then, and the more we understand then, the more our sense of now is changed. Now and Then has a simplicity and charm that would make it interesting and accessible to a good high school or community orchestra. Its 'moments in the sun' for each instrumental group and its interesting and logical metric changes offer gratifying challenges to players who may not have played much new music or who might have some resistance to it.
Now and Then is newly available, after a decade of being set aside, and its parts are now available on MusicaNeo as a separate zip file. It is waiting for its first ever performance (thus the midi recording). Contact Zae Munn if you are interested in premiering this piece.
