Composer / Arranger : Calabrese, Helmut Christoferus
Composer / Arranger Details: Helmut Christoferus Calabrese is a composer born in Germany in 1957; he immigrated to the U.S. in 1962. At the Philadelphia College of Performing Arts, where he earned his Bachelor of Music in composition, his teachers included Richard Elliot, Theodore Antoniou, and Andrew Rudin. At New York University, were he earned his Ph.D. in composition, his teacher was Ron Mazurek. At the Berklee College of Music, Calabrese studied film scoring techniques with Michael Rendish. Following his doctorate, Dr. Calabrese began teaching music and became a founding member of the music publishing company Calabrese Brothers Music, LLC. His writing styles can be classified in the genres of “serious” classical, “light” classical and contemporary gospel. His “sound” and film scores manifest influences of Ennio Morricone, Edgard Varese, and Bernard Herrmann. Coming from a concert music background, Dr. Calabrese applies to film scoring the orchestration and dramatic setting skills he acquired composing orchestral works including a one-act opera The Pearl (1979), and most recently he has completed the film score for the feature film Il Gioco É Fatto? for the Italian director Francseco Russo; this film will be released on May 7, 2011 in theaters throughout Italy. Dr. Calabrese has received ASCAPLUS awards from 2003 to 2009 by ASCAP. He was nominated by two United States Congressional Bills (1989) and (1991) to designate his song, “The Most Beautiful Lady in the World: Statue of Liberty Anthem” as official anthem of Statue of Liberty. He was also nominated by two State of New Jersey Bills (2002) and (2004) that “call on congress to designate” this anthem as the official anthem of the Statue of Liberty.

Programme Notes / Performance Details :Seeking for drum set is respectfully dedicated to Peter M. Jarvis. This piece is a journey into a state of mind whereby a spirit is seeking to fill a void with what appears to give fulfillment, yet these moments of fulfillment are illusive and temporary; consequently, the void continues to manifest itself in progressive transformations until the journey has run its inevitable course. – Helmut Christoferus Calabrese

Seeking was premiered on February 8, 2010 at William Paterson University, Shea Auditorium, on the New Music Series, performed by Peter Jarvis.

Seeking is included in Drumset Music for the Concert Stage, volume 1 which is an anthology of drumset pieces commissioned for Peter Jarvis by Calabrese Brothers Music.

The score is engraved by Peter Jarvis.
