Paradigms

Paradigms

for flugelhorn and piano

From the outset of his career as composer, Anthony Plog's unique, self-directed compositional style has evolved into one which effectively exploits the resources of chromaticism within often martial rhythmical formulas that create a sort of poetic sound-graphic (faintly reminiscent of  Charlie Chaplin’s 1936 film, Modern Times), which doesn’t exclude lyrical, dramatic or wild and/or elegant virtuoso sequences.

His Paradigms (elements of different forms) for flugelhorn and piano are written expressly within the confines of his  personal musical style and they address the dichotomy of man's robotic daily life in an agitated world and the resultant omnipresent personal anguish it generates.
