In a high range of possible subtleties in the mixing of sounds this piece arranges and deals with breathing in music. The piece is based on fine nuances between cerulean blue and manganese blue, between cadmium red and permanent red, embedded in the grammar of intensity, opacity, pigmentation of a sound colour alphabet. Micro breath-lines of various length bind to macro breath-lines by artificial extension.

(Stimmen: sFr. 31.-; € 24.-)
On the formal level, Sinus D generates an arch (lat. sinus) - like a D placed on ist back: the elements of a phrase - chords and their resulting melodic motifs - glide into each other successively to create a core of maximum density and a finish, which, with regard to this density, returns to the begining.

The solo horn is scored also for an authentic 19th century invention-horn, and the solo piano part (normal tuning) also plays a hammer piano (five octaves F - f4, sounding a quarter tone lower). The second piano in the ensemble is tuned a quarter tone lower. A discourse with Robert Schumann's music.

The percussionist plays both a principal and theatrical role performing on a table. The remaining instruments are, for the most, independent of one another; the piano is placed at the far-end of the scene. The sounds produced on the table are amplified.

1491 Eric Gaudibert: Images japonaises (2005) 18'
for horn and string quartet
sFr. 31.00
This work quotes a Haiku recited once by the hornist. It is inspired by the acidic sounds of Gagaku (music of the imperial court of Japan) and by the tense melismas of Nô. The string quartet's tempo is generally independent of the horn's. The five instrumentalist need to have a good command of micro intervals. The particular timbre of the quartet derives from researching the "fake" unisons.

A text about statistically the most frequent causes of death in Switzerland takes its course and is interspersed by ten extremely varied newsflashes from real life, all of them objets trouvés from two daily newspaper of 12th June, 2007. The statistical information is set to music in a recitative manner with very few, primarily sustained notes. This is in contrast to the ten newsflashes whose music is composed with lively movements and a tangible pulse in various structures. The somewhat macabre text montage reflects the apparent phenomenon of the sometimes-grotesque contrast of various themes and texts, which seems to magically attract humans.

26129 Max E. Keller: Il filo (2009) 5'
for violin and horn
sFr. 18.00
Il filo (the thread) is the name of the underlying theme: the sustained note, from which other things slowly emerge, split off or even oppose. The two instruments start unisono while the sustained tone soon gets rhythmized and played around by a second tone. They veer away from the unisono to find themselves reunited on the same note after various phases. In the final part both spin together or alternately on the same thread, leave it, play around it and give it individual colours.

sFr. 26.00
The chirping of crickets is generally considered to be soft and quiet, it can, however, become truly clamorous when when many crickets are heard at close quarters - just as one can experience it in the copses or groves of Greece. What is apparently weak can, en mass and under specific circumstances, develop unimagined power. In German the word for cricket is 'Grillen' and carries with it another maeaning: fantastical or dull thoughts.

18205 Cécile Marti: Oktogon (2008) 12'30
for string quartet and horn quartet
sFr. 65.00
Four horns stand face on with a string quartet. These two close and self-contained sounding groups are led into a kind of duet. It begins with the construction of two sounds before developing into a back and forth oscillation between the two sounding groups. There follows a mutual attempt at tonal alignment and then fine variations where the groups enter an area of wavering tones. Re-colouring moments of the horizontal figurations or a hocket-like interplay between the two parties arises. The themetization of the instrument-specific base elements, the fifths tuning of the strings and the natural spectrum of the horn become the harmonic culture medium for the whole piece.

10240 Michael Schneider: Gran Partita (2011) 13'
for wind septet (fl, ob, cl, bh, bcl, bn, hn)
sFr. 42.00
"The seagull continues to play. But she is no longer alone. They came one after the other, against the wind. A bassoon is here, a long, thin lament; an oboe, guttural; a horn, horns, various colours, dry in the brass; a deep voice, a sonorous bass draws long, thick threads through the sound carpet. Above me on the craggy ledge sit thirteen seagulls, each with a tone of its own. Highs and lows, warmth and coolness, a mystical choir, a serenade from within the wind." The number of seagulls in this excerpt from a short story by the Swiss author Andreas Neeser makes reference to the number of instruments in Mozart's famous wind serenade 'Gran Partitia', which also lends its name to Neeser's short story. Published in a volume of stories entitled 'Unsicherer Grund' or 'Unsafe Ground' (Haymon, 2010), Neeser's 'Gran Partita' pays homage to nature and the legends of Bretagne: An observation made at the westernmost side of Bretagne and a metaphor within which man and his emotions are mirrored. Commissioned by the Bläsersolisten Aargau, my 'Gran Partita' reflects the music in Neeser's text and the nature it evokes - the structural elements of the short story and also the geology and fauna of Bretagne. The instrument's scales symbolise granite, the predominant stone in this area, and the vegetation and topos of the sea and the call of the seagulls. Non-musical parameters define the musical material, the form of which offers absolute priority to the melodic line. This leads to an autonomous sound metaphor comprising lines and colours, that makes the underlying substance as an explanation no longer necessary.

Night has probably never been praised higher and in so many facets by anyone other than Joseph von Eichendorff. For myself, his poems are equivalent to the music of Schubert and Schumann. A possible discovery of reality on the edge of the concrete, proceeding to point out another reality.

5247 Balz Trümpy: EIS EROTA (2002) 12'
for soprano, baritone, horn, two trumpets, trombone, percussion and strings
sFr. 62.00
Sappho and Alkaios from the isle of Lesbos are amongst the most prestigious representatives of Greek lyrics strongly connected with the Orpheus saga. After the heavenly singer has lost his beloved Eurydice to the underworld and, spurned by his endless mourning, he seeks the love of other women. Bacchante tear him to pieces in an angry rage and cast his head into the sea. The tide washes it onto the shores of Lesbos - here his mouth is once again brought to speech by the lyric of the island. Mythological notions merge with personal experience and sufferance in connection with the erotic. Eros is the ‘weirdest God’ (Alkaois) whose effect is to rip open the abyss between the highest fulfilment and the degeneration towards death. The elemental force with which he encompasses man awakes in him an orpheic longing for immortality and the desire to overcome the underworld; simultaneously bringing even more painfully the forlornness of his wish to consciousness. While Alkaios attempts to forget in wild drunkenness and sexual indulgence, we eavesdrop on Sappho, and the dark tones of a wish for love in which pain resonates with the transient. EIS EROTA combines fragments from both poets to produce a dialogue on the subject of love and death.
