Mr. Smith's Composition
takes the audience on a hilarious and educational journey into the mind
of Mr. Smith as he composes. The audience is even drawn into the process
by being asked to choose the final ending, which they are encouraged
to do by following their hearts. The narration is written in the
“third person” but capable narrators are urged to perform the work
in the “first person”. This further enhancement gives the
audience the meaningful experience of hearing and seeing a living composer.
Commissioned and premiered by Marin Alsop and the Eugene Symphony, Mr. Smith's Composition is the first of Gregory Smith’s efforts in the genre. When it arrived in 1990, it ushered in a fresh approach to family-educational concert programming.
Orchestration: 3(pic),2(3 opt.),2(3opt.),2(3opt.) 4, 3, 3, 1 Timp +2, Harp, Strings, Narrator.
Translations available: German, Korean.
