For Now (1975)

orchestra

Programme notes

This score, which is read from top to bottom, right to left, and then left to right, and so on, evokes the movement of a stream becoming a river with its meanders and rapids. Logothetis sought to create music scores that would express as much as possible the mobility and alternation of electronic music’s new sounds, thus allowing greater flexibility in interpretation. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find anywhere the original recordings of the piece, as conducted by Logothetis himself in 1975. This is therefore my own orchestration; I sincerely hope it is as close as possible as to what the composer wished to express with this magnificent score.
