Anna Clyne’s “Stride” for String Orchestra

The River Oaks Chamber Orchestra performs Anna Clyne's new work from a live concert, recorded on November 14th, 2020

“'Stride' draws inspiration from Ludwig van Beethoven's Piano Sonata No. 8 in C minor, Op. 13, commonly known as Sonata Pathétique,” Ms. Clyne told the Violin Channel. "This piece was co-commissioned by the Australian Chamber Orchestra, who gave the world premiere in November 2020, Lausanne Chamber Orchestra, River Oaks Chamber Orchestra, and the Scottish Chamber Orchestra.

"As a cellist, I have a real love of writing for strings and am able to consider the physicality of playing a string instrument when I am writing for them. The string orchestra is a wonderful sound palette.

"I used a revolutionary new application of audiovisual technology which is currently being developed by Grammy-winning audio engineer Jody Elff. Essentially, the device is a mannequin head fitted with a custom-built binaural microphone array and 360 degree spherical camera, which allows audio to be sent over the public internet to any other location anywhere. It enables me to travel the world to be "present" at rehearsals of new works. In addition to saving time and financial resources, it is also a green solution, minimizing fuel emissions from flights and travel.

"I hope that the listeners will have been swept away on a musical journey that has glimpses into the past by means of reimagining cells from Beethoven's Sonata Pathétique. I hope that it sounds both familiar and new."
