Program Note

Through It All opens with the solo call of the French horn, answered quietly by flute and oboe and joined subsequently by clarinet and bassoon. The bassoon then vigorously punches out a line, prompting the others to enter into a rather slurry, polyrhythmic melee. Then, adding to the variety of uttered phrases (each stopping in total silence), there follows a series of eerie, soft, long-held chords. “What is going on here?” a listener might ask, as one is pulled deeper and deeper into the environment of mystery that is a Singleton musical signature. Material drawn and developed from or contrasted with these opening events appears in sequence and draws us on into the work until, about two thirds of the way into the piece, the massed quintet seems to erupt and makes us sense the climaxing of the work. Or is it? The listener is invited to decide. As the work closes (passing “through it all”), one may hear what sound like monastic harmonies and a sense of positive calm descending on the scene.
