Delian Games 2006


Welcome to The 2006 Delian Suite web page!

By visiting the following links, you can listen to mp3s of each composer's musical contribution, read program notes, and view images evoking each movement of this international creative collaboration by members of the Delian Society. You will also find links to the composers enabling you to acquire free PDF files of each movement.

The Delian Suite was composed just before and during the 2006 Delian Games, held annually in the month of May by the Delian Society. All composer members of the DS, whether professional or amateur, were eligible to participate in this noncompetitive collaborative project. Each was asked to create a short work of his/her choice based on the overall theme of "Spooks, Spirits, and Sprites." It was understood in advance that the movements could be performed individually or combined to form a suite, such that the choice of movements and the order in which they are performed is left entirely to the players (or, in the case of those who visit this web page, to the listeners). All those contributing to the project display a gold 2006 Delian Games medallion on their web pages in acknowledgment of the Society's appreciation for their creative gifts.

We hope you enjoy our music, and that if you or one of your colleagues or students performs our work, that you will contact us at the e-mail address below with the news. If you are interested in commissioning any of our composers for new works, feel free to contact her/him directly. You may also post a message to him/her by using the Society's e-mail link at the bottom of the Delian Suite II web pages.
