6 preludes (2003/2013)
for accordion

The score is in exact pitch, and the proposed registers can be changed according to room and instrument etc.

The 6 preludes can be performed individually or as a suite.

6 preludes is originally composed in 2003 for organ with one manual and dedicated to David Lau Magnussen. It is arranged for accordion in 2013.

The focus on melody and especially harmony is profound in the work. It is based mainly on major thirds and sequences of varying duration. In Prelude no. 2, 4 and 6 there is periods with long accelerandoes that slowly but inevitable changes the music to a different state of musical expression.

Duration: 14-15 min.
