Suite in the Old Style, Op 28


The Suite in the Old Style, Op 28 alludes to the rich mother lode of African-American spirituals and Gospel music through the structural contours of a Bach French Suite or Partita, with each movement corresponding in texture, tempo, and hierarchy of repeats to its precise baroque counterpart.

from notes by Jed Distler © 2004

La Suite dans un style ancien opus 28 évoque la richesse des spirituals et les gospels afro-américains à travers les contours formels d’une Suite française ou d’une Partita de Bach ; chaque mouvement correspond précisément par ses texture, tempo et hiérarchie, à sa contrepartie baroque.

Die Suite in the Old Style, op. 28 zapft die reiche Hauptader afroamerikanischer Spirituals und Gospelmusik mit dem strukturellen Werkzeug einer französischen Suite oder Partita von Bach an, wobei jeder Satz bezüglich des Stimmsatzes, Tempos und der Wiederholungshierarchien seinem jeweiligem Vorbild in der barocken Suite entspricht.
