Program note

English

Passing (2011-2014)
for guitar duo

Passing is an arrangement of the two first movements of Passing for accordion solo by the composer in close cooperation with Copenhagen Guitar Duo (Allan Sjølin and Martin Buono) for guitar duo

  • Passing I Allegro con passion sostenuto

Quickly repeating notes, small motives and fast patterns. Different tempos in both hands and in the same register, all in a simple sequence of 3 major thirds which represents all the harmonics in the piece.

  • Passing II Andante con dolore sostenuto

Slow movement with a theme that slowly moves around in different registers

The two parts can be performed individually or as a suite.

Mobile
A musical technique where different layers of music in individual tempos, metric and musical style are combined in a simple pattern of chords, which slowly modulate through all the keys in a newer ending sequence, creating a music with no or very few dissonances.

I've developed the technique by combining different musical methods used in older works.

  1. Use of multiple layers of music, which have been a important part of my music since 2000.
  2. A simple repeating sequence of chords as the only harmonic material in the piece, which creates a music on the move, in a never ending modulation from the start to the end. Used in works like Haiku (1999), In liquid... (violin and piano) (2003) and Image balancantes (2004).
  3. A 'rhythm across harmony' principle, where different together sounding motives are played in individual tempos across the rhythm of the chords.

First used in Smoke (2000) and developed as a technique in Liebestraum (Liszt arrangement from 2005), and later used in 8 momenti mobile (2008) before it finally evolved to the technique used in Concerto in tempi from 2010 and forward.

Passing (2011-2014)
for guitar duo

Passing er et arrangement af de to første satser i Passing for akkordion solo af komponisten i tæt samarbejde med Copenhagen Guitar Duo (Allan Sjølin og Martin Buono)

  • Passing I Allegro con passion sostenuto

Hurtige gentagende noder, små motiver og hurtige mønstrer. Forskellige tempoer i begge hænder og i det samme register, alt i en simpel sekvens af 3 store tertser som udgør hele harmonikken i værket.

  • Passing II Andante con dolore sostenuto

Langsom sats med et tema der langsomt bevæger sig rundt i forskellige registre

De tre dele kan opføres individuelt eller som en suite.

Mobile
En teknik hvor forskellige lag af musik i hver deres tempo, metrik og musikalsk stil kombineres i et simpelt mønster af akkorder, som langsomt modulere igennem alle tonearter i en uendelig sekvens, skabende en musik med ingen eller ganske få dissonanser.

Expert reviews

Accordions Worldwide April 2018 ... external link

... Fresh music, contemporary but not excessively "intellectual" and not at all hermetic, indeed sincere and communicative, often captivating, which show strong roots with the great Western "classical" tradition; a happy combination, just like in Scarlatti, of lightness and playfulness with passion and solemnity.
... Music that surely reconciles the audience with contemporary "cultured" music and that undoubtedly enrichs the specific repertoire for the accordion.
