Johnnie Lad, Cock up your Beaver!
Johnnie Lad, Cock up your Beaver!How to Cock your Beaver A short introduction (for solo clarinet and dancer, in which the dancer demonstrates the correct manner to cock one's beaver.) Speaking notes: 1 Introduction 1.1 Why is that people in Vancouver are so rude? 1.2 In the time of Jane Austin, people had very good manners indeed. 1.3 We’re going to perform a piece of music from her era designed to show you how to correct you behaviour. The piece is “Johnnie Lad, Cock up your Beaver!” It has many interpretations. 2 Beaver 2.1 Don’t laugh, I know what you’re thinking. What could Jane Austen possibly have in common with the furry rodent found throughout the savage untamed lands of Canada? Listen to these words then: When first my brave Johnie lad came to this town, He had a blue bonnet that wanted the crown; But now he has gotten a hat and a feather, Hey, brave Johnie lad, cock up your beaver! —Robert Burns, 1791 2.2 The most popular beaver was the hat cocked up on three sides—the tricorne. 2.3 But cocking your beaver also refers to how you decorate your hat, in in affixing a cock-aide on top. 2.4 You could also cock your beaver by wearing it at a rakish angle.

ArbutusIn Arbutus, for tárogató and piano, the “new” and “old” worlds collide through two distinct, alternating musical ideas: fast, aggressive, percussive music expressing the chaos of being uprooted and escaping to an unfamiliar country and culture; and slow, longing music evoking memories of the country left behind. The bends and ornaments of traditional tárogató playing are an integral part of both soundworlds, and the piano's tremolos are reminiscent of the cimbalom. The title Arbutus comes from the arbutus tree so common in British Columbia, but not native to Hungary, again reflecting the “newness” of the Soproners’ new home. Arbutus was commissioned by Jason Hall in celebration of the 60th anniversary of the Sopron Division at the Faculty of Forestry, University of British Columbia. It was made possible with the assistance of the British Columbia Arts Council.

Rákóczi Siralma (Rákóczi's Lament) - tárogató
Rákóczi Siralma (Rákóczi's Lament) - tárogatóThe kuruc were the armed anti-Habsburg rebels in Royal Hungary between 1671 and 1711. Their leader, Rakóczi ferenc became the symbol of the age and inspiration for this patriotic anthem. In the 19th century when Hector Berlioz visited Budapest, he played his "Marche de Rakoczi" causing great excitement among the proud Hungarians. This performance is based on the source "anthem" rather than the adaption of Berlioz.
