0519 Nicolas Bolens: A Due (2000) 7'30
for oboe, clarinet, violin and double bass
sFr. 16.00
Composition by Eric Gaudibert / Nicolas Bolens. This work is written by two hands, by two different composers who experimented in equally sharing the single instruments: the oboe and double-bass on the one hand side and the violin and the clarinet on the other. The precisely written violin is the conducting element and the three other instruments are grouped accurately around it. A description of the tempi allows easy playing. This piece has a medium level of difficulty.

sFr. 26.00
The first part of this work gives the double-bass a virtuoso role. The two instruments are now independent as far as their character and the tempo is concerned. In the second part, the double-bass and accordion merge in a lyrical and poetic way. This work resulted in two solo versions: 'Deux ou trois pas...' for double-bass and 'Deux pas dans le gris' for accordion.

26107 Max E. Keller: calmo e furioso (2003/04) 13'
for clarinet (bass clarinet), accordion and double bass
sFr. 26.00
The initial point of departure for this composition is the contrast between calm and hectic, unfolded in transitions and tempo cuts on nine basic figures which, with time, develop a rich life of their own. The initial impetus provokes processes on other levels - almost like in real life.

26114 Max E. Keller: Schlaglichter (2006) 4'
for oboe, clarinet, bassoon, double bass and percussion
sFr. 21.00
These three miniatures are the reshaping of the structure and instrumentation of three laconic parts of my opera "Die Axt" after "Graf Öderland" by Max Frisch, which I composed as a commission for the Komischen Oper Berlin. Schlaglicht I is taken from the end of the 2nd act. In Schlaglicht II, the wind instrumentalists play excerpts from the three trumpets in the 1st act, while the percussion and double bass develop a new oppositional layer. Schlaglicht III transposes almost the entire 5th act where the bassoon and oboe intonate the duet between the central character and his partner, while the clarinet and double bass play the accompanying trumpet and tuba and the percussion brings in a new line.

26124 Max E. Keller: accent - figure - layer (2008) 58'
A project between improvisation and composition
for bass clarinet/tenor saxophone, percussion, piano, violin, viola and double bass
sFr. 26.00
The wide scope between improvisation and composition is calibrated. There are, however, no long notated passages but form sequences, short notated phrases as starting points, verbal instructions and graphics - right through to improvisation as one extreme. The musical material is based on the archetypal elements 'accent', 'figure' and 'layer' as mentioned in the title. The through-composed parts "unione e tremolo" for violin and viola (movement II) and the violin solo "NONONONO" (movement VII) are inserted between the six movements as the other extreme.

26147 Max E. Keller: Die Schwestern (2011/12) 6'
for soprano and double bass (or soprano and piano)
sFr. 18.00
Texts: Christian Morgenstern In a dialogue between a bell and a cannon, the cannon exhibits ist sisterly nearness: "Today they are yours and pray, tomorrow they are mine and kill." The bell vehemently rejects this kinship with the cannon. But is the cannon really wrong? Are religion and War not often twinned? On the one hand, the musical setting accentuates the contrast between the soprano and double bass, even working within the two parties with extreme contrasts. On the other hand, the double bass occasionally ascends the lofty heights of the soprano and twins itself with the voice.

sFr. 26.00
This piece, without text, was written for the altus Luiz Alves da Silva. It works primarily with oscillating, non transition forming elements such as register change, upbow - downbow, to and fro movements etc. Continually changing parameters such as dynamics and tempo transitions are to be avoided in so far as they are not induced by the instrument or the human being itself.

An initial piece based on repetition presented in such a way that the repeated elements, located on many different levels, are not always immediately recognizable. This gives the impression of a loosely fabricated form. It is sonorously very soft with lots of sounds and lots of interlocking rhythms. Requires a conductor.

Cycle with poems by Georg Trakl
for mezzo-soprano, bass, flute, harpsichord, four violins, viola, violoncello and double bass
sFr. 83.00
An erotic, sticky piece that takes the incestuous relationship between Trakls and his sister as its theme. 'Nachtduett' is a series of scenic poems predestined for the stage.

8204 Alfons Karl Zwicker: Erfrorene Träume (1990/92) 29'
Cycle based on poems by Josef Kopf
for mezzo-soprano and ensemble (fl(pic).cl(bcl)/hp.pf.hpd/2vn.va.vc.db)
sFr. 78.00
Large-scale song cycle in which the metaphors of ice, cold and freezing are centralised. The leading part for the mezzo-soprano is extremely demanding in the emotional and technical areas. (Vocal range e# - b").

for three improvising musicians (any instruments), string orchestra and harpsichord

The improvised part is composed for wind instruments, double bass and drums but can just as easily be realised using other instruments.
