Program note

Istid [Ice age]

In Istid we are back to the golden age of the ice, a time where the ice lay like a huge white mantle on top of most of Northern Europe. Beneath the ice the world of today was gradually formed, with huge hills and valleys shaped by the massive amount of water running quietly under the thick layers of ice. In the first part of the work, the clarinet, violin and cello plays in the same register, in a music that slowly opens and closes beneath the ice crystals of the piano. In the middle part the music breath more freely, before it ends in pure harmonics in a quiet crystalline music.
