New order in 3PI

2010 September 23

The last couple of weeks I have begun to think about changing the order of 3PI. I originally thought it was logical and natural to arrange the four concertos chronologically. (If you have read my previous posts in the subject, you know that each of these four concertos for different saxophones and orchestra relates to different periods in the history of music.) I come up with this new order: 3 Part Interpretation – Applying the romantic (alto sax), 3 Part Idiosyncrasy – Peculiar classical (tenor sax), 3 part Immediacy – Apprehending the 20th century (bari sax), 3 Part Intervention – Interference with baroque (soprano sax). The titles of the concertos above and also the titles of the different movements are all inferred from the soprano sax concerto. So the setup is kind of like a riddle which gets its solution at the end when we reach that concerto. I also think it is interesting to jump back and forward in time and also regarding the different sizes of saxophones.

Here I publish information of the music I've written. I also blog about my projects and thoughts about music in general.

I am a contemporary classical composer and compose music for classical musicians, but as you can see from my worklist I've also done other things - including live electronics, electroacoustic music (eam) and music for other types of ensembles (e.g. a jazz trio).

My works have been performed globally, including Europe, Asia and North America.
