Concerto in tempi
Concerto in tempi for accordion & string orchestra is an arrangement of the original score for accordion & piano from 2010 (revised 2012), and it's dedicated to Bjarke Mogensen.
Romantic melodies, short glimpse of baroque music, rhythmic flows, static chords, concentrated figures, slow motives, music in 5/4, 4/8, 12/16, 2/4, 9/16, 3/4, 6/32, 4/4, tempos from 72 to 192, all combined in a simple pattern of 3 major thirds, like the pure coloured light from a beautiful glass mosaic.
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.
- Use of multiple layers of music, which have been a important part of my music since 2000.
- 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... (2003) and Image balancantes (2004).
- 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 Moto immoto (2009-10) and in this work.
