Repertoire Note

Deutsch

The four-movement composition is reminiscent of the refined chamber music works of French modernism scored for a mixture of winds and strings, yet integrates a proletarian accordion instead of pleasant harp sounds. All five instruments are played in a highly virtuoso manner and with alternating solo roles. Der Standard called the work, which was commissioned by Klangspuren Schwaz and premiered by the ensemble Wiener Collage in 2006, 'densely written, mediating between ethereal gliding and pulsating excitement'.
