Rapsodia Nusantara no. 10, based on a folksong from Bali, Indonesia. The melody is used as the bass of the passacaglia in the second half of this piece.
El pianista y compositor Ananda Sukarlan estrenó en España su Fantasía y fuga sobre BACH. Tras un potente inicio, sutiles disonancias y amplios acordes envuelven el motivo BACH en un clima de meditación donde cobra protagonismo la resonancia de los armónicos del instrumento. La “Fuga”, toda ella derivada del motivo BACH, se desarrolla con inquietud y concluye de manera vigorosa.
Opera ‘CLARA’ by Ananda Sukarlan, inspired from the story of the same title by Seno Gumira Ajidarma, based on the events of May 1998 in Indonesia. ‘CLARA’, written during the economic, political and social crisis of May 1998, and published in the wake of Suharto’s resignation, is one of the few pieces of Indonesian literature that addresses the sexual violence of 1998. ‘CLARA’ is a multi-layered narrative that recounts the perspective of an ethnic Chinese woman who was raped during the largely anti-Chinese riots and mass rapes that occurred in Jakarta over the 13th and 14th...

Traducción: Cogido del blog de Ananda Sukarlan http://andystarblogger.blogspot.com.e... "Empecé mi décima rapsodia en el 2011 realizando su estructura formal: una introducción virtuosística, algunas variaciones y un final de pasacalles. Este es tal vez la Rapsodia más ruidosa hasta ahora (el último acorde de la primera sección muestra la bomba, por lo que nunca se puede tocar demasiado fuerte!), Y tiene un elemento único: es la única pieza en mi vida que no modula y sólo emplea 5 notas. Esas 5 notas son de la modalidad pentatónica balinesa, ya que el material de esta pieza...

Good night, good night! Parting is such sweet sorrow, That I shall say good night till it be morrow (W. Shakespeare, Romeo & Juliet) Sweet, so would I, Yet I should kill thee with much cherishing. Good night, good night! Parting is such sweet sorrow, That I shall say good night till it be morrow. (from Romeo & Juliet, W. Shakespeare) PIANO: Ananda Sukarlan VIOLIN: Inez Raharjo (born on 9 May 1994)
"Krawang - Bekasi" This is the last movement of Ananda Sukarlan's cantata no. 2 "LIBERTAS", all based on poems about freedom and liberty. This particular poem is perhaps the most famous Indonesian poem, written by Chairil Anwar, one of Indonesia' greatest poet. KRAWANG - BEKASI Chairil Anwar Kami yang kini terbaring antara Krawang-Bekasi Tidak bisa teriak MERDEKA dan angkat senjata lagi. Tapi siapakah yang tidak lagi mendengar deru kami, Terbayang kami maju dan mendegap hati? Kami bicara padamu dalam hening di malam sepi Jika dada rasa hampa dan jam dinding...
In this new violin piece I want to experiment in "relationships" of different musical materials which have nothing to do with each other to be put in one piece. In order to do that, they must have something, even very small, in common, otherwise the piece won't have a solid form, therefore I should think of a motif that binds them all. Now, "relationship" in Indonesian is "relasi", which comes from the Dutch word "relatie". As I am in the mood of using people's name initials as motifs for my piece now the motif for "Manuel's piece" comes by itself. What else but Re-La-Si?

"Mozart Meandering through Java before Bumping into Beethoven in Boston" Composed by Ananda Sukarlan. Commissioned by David Svoboda. Dedicated to Richard Svoboda, John Ferrillo, James Sommerville from Boston Symphony Orchestra; Katie Zagorski; and Erin Svoboda. http://andystarblogger.blogspot.com "Principal Winds of the Boston Symphony Orchestra & Guests with Ananda Sukarlan"
Indonesian composer Ananda Sukarlan wrote pieces for all wind instruments (solo and with piano), inspired by the characters of Ancient Greek from Ovid's book "Metamorphosis". "Echo's Whisper" is for oboe & piano. The "echo" effect is done by the repetitive chords (on piano) or notes (on oboe), dying away every time. Echo is in love with Narcissus who rejects her love because he is in love with himself. After she cheated Hera, Hera curses her by making her only able to repeat the last words said by the others, and couldn't say anything on her own, even until her death she "remains a...
