Herricks Road
[ED0230]
$18.95

Herricks Road

Composer: Karen Fremar

Commissioned by the American Accordionists' Association in honor of Faithe Deffner on the occasion of receiving the American Accordionists' Association Lifetime Achievement Award - September 20, 2009.

This selection is written for accordion, African djembe, and other small percussion instruments, although the work will stand alone as an accordion solo.

Composer's Performance Notes:
Herricks Road in Mineola, New York, was the location of Deffner Enterprises from the early 1970s. The Ballad of this work portrays a thoughtful Faithe Deffner at sunrise arriving at the office considering her latest project. The traffic on Herricks Road begins to pick up as the djembe enters and cars zoom by. The accordion business in the shop begins in earnest with the entrance of the main theme at measure 24.
The middle section is a nod to Faithe Deffner's wonderful organizational skills in planning and orchestrating the many competitions and conventions on behalf of the national and international accordion organizations. She is heard ringing a hotel desk bell as she visits with the management of various hotels to find the great deals for which she is known. The conclusion of this section with grand chordal progressions underscored by suspended cymbal, illustrates the success of the events she has planned. Various shop sounds emerge again as the work returns to the facility on Herricks Road. The triumphant conclusion represents the many successes of Faithe Deffner and Ernest Deffner, Inc. over its 75 years of operations.
The composition was conceived for accordion, Africe djembe and other small percussion instruments, although the work will stand alone as an accordion solo. If performed as a solo, the accordion grill may be rhythmically tapped to compensate for the absence of the djembe entrance, or measure 14 may be omitted. A stradella bass ossia has been provided in the Ballad, for performers who do not use a converting bass instrument.
