More about this title

Ein Musikalisches Snookerspiel

Based on Mozart's Musical Dice Game, this supremely witty 5 movement work follows five frames of snooker. Mozart was one of the best billiards players in Europe, so it is fitting that snooker should have been used to construct this piece from Mozart's famous aleatoric work.

... a delicious bicentennial tribute to Mozart from a time when postmodernism was still an incitement rather than an excuse.


“1991 was, of course, Mozart year but along with all the reverences it produced a number of bright refacings, including a version of the musical dice game by Gary Carpenter...”


“... the ‘victor ludorum’ was undoubtedly Gary Carpenter. His witty use of snooker derived indeterminicies in Ein Musikalisches Snookerspiel created an apt Mozartian tribute and a fascinating post-modern dance set in which Stravinskian neo-classicism ... turned the tables on a rich harmonic palette reminiscent of late Strauss.”


“[Gary Carpenter] provided a whole short suite full of musical humour and delectability.”
