Detail

Description

Premiered by the Aarhus Symphony and the British pianists Philip Mead and Stephen Gutman. Much of the source material for the tape part was recorded on a Bosendorfer Imperial Grand, and subsequently digitally edited and collaged into the pre-recorded material. The sequence of pitches, E-flat, B-flat, A, E, appears in the tape part at the beginning, and serves as the basis of organization for the entire work. The tape part was realized during a residency at the Danish Institute of Elecroacoustic Music (DEIM) in May 1993. The solo piano parts were written in a concerto-like virtuosic style. The recording (Capstone, SCI), was made in cooperation with the Danish Broadcasting Corporation.
