River of the Ancient Galleon.
Aleksander Pusz. Score for vibraphone and cello. Commissioned by Charles Darwin University in 2005. From the composer: “The piece lasts about eight minutes and is in three sections, which can be thought of as mixed-up memories, a dream sequence, and false memories of glory days”.
Aleksander Pusz. Score and parts for flute, Bb clarinet, piano, violin, and cello. From the composer: “Temples
was originally written while I was still a student in 1996. I made modifications afterwards and didn’t get to hear them until 2013 when Temples won the Mildura Wentworth Arts Festival Composition Competition and was consequently performed by Melbourne’s Syzygy Ensemble during their Residency in Mildura that year”.
Viscous Summer Days.
Aleksander Pusz, 2000. Score for solo violin and vibraphone. From the composer: “Viscous Summer Days
was written about the feeling of lethargy towards the end of a heatwave, and was an unpaid commission requested by Bogdan Kazmierczek (violin) and my father, Ryszard Pusz (percussion). Live performances tend to be around six minutes because the super slow tempo is very difficult to hold onto!”.
