McLachlan, John: Fata Morgana 

 

 

Basic information

 

Notes

  • Program notes: 

    A Fata Morgana is a specific type of mirage where the image is distorted by multiple
    images of the object appearing on top of one another with one of them inverted. The
    result sometimes resembles castles, so sailors used to believe that these were
    temptations laid before them by the Fata (fairy) Morgana (of Arthurian legend). They
    are often seen in the distance from lower Lough Foyle (from Donegal) when looking
    towards Magilligan point. Each piece in this little cycle of miniatures either refers to
    aural illusions or else plays aural tricks on the listener in some way.
    Fata Morgana consists of five pieces as follows:
    1. Illusion I (1’15) [quintet]
    2. Heterophony (3’10) [trio: fl/ob/cl]
    3. Illusion II (1’30) [quintet]
    4. Hocket (1’10) [duo: bass cl/bsn]
    5. Illusion III (2’00) [quintet]
