Program note

In English

Liebestraum
Clarinet in Bb, violin, cello and piano

The piece has been written for the ensemble Nordlys, and is a recomposition of the famous Liebestraum for piano by Liszt. The work is saturated by different rhythmical displacements, f .ex. in the start where the 6/8 in the original accompaniment is changed to the more special 5/8, and an extra voice has been written in the violin in 4/8.

Normally Liebestraum is played with quit a bit of rubato and small displacements between melody and accompaniment, and it's this feeling I've developed in my recomposition. Paradoxical it's only possible to play this piece, if the musician are very tight and play without to much rubato in this beautiful work from the old times.

In Danish

Liebestraum
Klarinet i Bb, violin, cello and klaver

Værket er skrevet til Nordlys, og er et arrangement, eller måske nærmere en genkomponering af Liszts berømte Liebestraum for klaver. Da Nordlys henvendte sig med deres projekt om at arrangere ”Klassikere” på en ny måde, kom jeg straks til at tænke på Liebestraum. Værket har en af de smukkeste melodier jeg kender, og så har det et akkompagnement som jeg straks så nogle muligheder i.

Det genkomponerede værk er gennemsyret af forskellige rytmiske forskydninger, bl.a. har jeg i starten af værket ændret den grundlæggende fornemmelse i akkompagnementet fra 6-ottendedele til den mere specielle 5-ottendedele, og skrevet en ekstra stemme i violinen der følger 5-ottendedele fornemmelsen, men som selv går i 4-ottendedele.

Normalt spilles Liebestraum med en god portion rubato og små forskydninger mellem melodi og akkompagnement, og det er denne fornemmelse som jeg har ”udbygget” i mit arrangement. De mange tempolag gør at den samlede fornemmelse af rubato/forskydning imellem instrumenterne bliver større, hvilket paradoksalt nok kun kan lade sig gøre hvis musikkerne spiller væsentlig strammere end de naturligt har lyst til, i et så dejligt og smukt romantisk værk fra den gamle verden.
