Programme Note
John Tavener In the Highest (2001),
In the highest was originally written for harmonica and ensemble, for Larry Adler to play with the Scottish Ensemble, and it was composed in memory of Michael, Lord Marks. The solo part may also be performed by a violin.

Ideally the soloist should play from a very high position, sounding distant but clearly audible, with the aid of a microphone if necessary. The ensemble (Tibetan temple bowl, large tam-tam and muted strings) should be seated in the ground space or main platform.

The music should sound tender and haunting, for a lost paradise...

J.T.
