NIKOLAUS Fheodoroff - Reminiscences (1992)
The client of this composition, Mrs. Elena Denisova, is born in Russia. When she in 1992 their concerns approached me to write a trio for their (Russian) Ensemble, I remembered my concert tour in 1972 by the former Soviet Union with the Carinthian Madrigal Choir Klagefurt, where we regionally for encores after the concerts in every city typical folk songs examined shortly rehearsed and darboten. In Kiev, there was the pretty spring song "Vijdi, vijdi Ivanku ...", which has also been used in a PITschikowsky his composition.
This song not only identifies the first half of the twelve-tone row that the "Reminiscences" is based, but also the vertical and horizontal structure of the whole piece until it is quoted verbatim in the late three-part canon between violin, cello and piano.
MIKHAIL Kollontay - Ten Words of Mussorgsky DEATH VIKTOR Hartmann (1993)
The "Ten Words of Mussorgsky death Viktor Hartmann's" were composed in 1993, commissioned by the "Jeunesse Musicale" for Elena Denisova and Alexei Kornienko. Both in the name of its parts, as well as in its inner content, the work is coordinated with the "Pictures at an Exhibition" by Modest Mussorgsky. The masterpiece Mussorgsky is interpreted as a tribute to the artist Viktor Hartmann.
Once the images Kollontays illustrated directly the images Hartmanns and Mussorgsky ("The marketplace of Limoges"), the other time is an unexpected inversion performed ("Ballet of the Chicks in their eggshells"), then the images very enigmatic ("again are The Great Gate of Kiev "). It is important to know that in the understanding of the soul in the afterlife Orthodox Christians a way for many stations travels, where she has to give an account by the lived life. Who can know, perhaps are the forces acting during this hike, while the Court of God, in the cycle Mussorgsky before us and are reflected in the Trio Mikhail Kollontays.
BOUDEWIJN Buckinx - TRIO NR. 1 BBWV 1989.21
Buckinx music is often called neo romantic, but this designation actually makes only sense with regard to this trio. The various elements in the piece establish a continuous discourse. But even in this trio of romantic sonorous sound and the pathetic gesture be tempered by moments of sobriety and simplicity, so that the discourse combined self-contained musical worlds in an uncomplicated way.
