New Piece

Year 1971
Publisher Edition Peters
Program Notes

[This score was previously self-published by Earle Brown. It is available as facsimile print from Edition Peters as of 2007.]


NEW PIECE is related to the "Modules" series for large orchestra but is texturally much more simple. Each of four groups of instruments is orchestrated on a single interval: 5ths, octaves, minor 9ths, and 10ths. The conductor may combine, shape and form them in various ways, as in "Modules" - a simple sonic event.
—Earle Brown
