17907 Andreas Brenner: Alas (2010) 4'30
for trumpet solo
sFr. 16.00
This short solo piece for trumpet is based on a kind of variation form. The idiosyncratic melodic structure is created when the two voices of a canon are projected into the unisonous; the rules, by which this canon abides, change from variation to variation.

17906 Andreas Brenner: Sinus D (2010) 9'
for brass quintet (horn, 2 trumpets, trombone, tuba)
sFr. 23.00
(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.

17909 Andreas Brenner: Prismen (2011) 12'
for wind quintet (horn, 2 trumpets, trombone, tuba) and organ
sFr. 29.00
(Stimmen: sFr. 18.-; € 14.-)
Short three or four tone phrases of equidistant intervals are combined in such a way as to form sound structures similar to those found in tonal music. This piece uses a radically reduced amount of material in ever-changing combinations to create prismatic radiations. The sound structures are relics, nothing but colour values - no longer bound by gravity to a base tone (as in tonal music), but produced through a constructive law. This is also the case with the E major chord, which brings this piece to a 'concilitory' end.

for bassoon solo, bass flute, bass clarinet and trumpet
sFr. 26.00
This piece was composed for the 30th anniversary of the ensemble Contrechamps. The title corresponds to the timing which Bartók set for his Allgero Barbaro. The trio (flute, clarinet, trumpet) play some extracts of this work with breathing sounds only, while the solo bassoon "sings" the beginning of the Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta, also by Bartók. It is possible to use other wind instruments than the ones chosen here.

26134 Max E. Keller: Grillen (2009) 6'
for trumpet 1 in B, trumpet 2 in B, horn (F), trombone and tuba
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.

18204 Cécile Marti: trennend verschmelzen (2007) 7'30
for soprano and trumpet
sFr. 18.00
The core of this piece is created by the convergence of two sounds with very different tonal characters. It is an attempt at bringing together two differing tonal qualities (one soft and elastic, the other sharp and determined), to recoulour them and transform them. Is it possible to create a moment where a new mutual sounding body is formed, where a combination colour becomes a new primary colour? How can this threshold be approached: via the fusion of harmony, by increasing the disharmony, through the alternation of tone and tempo dispositions? The more the voice becomes a sound dispenser, the more instrumental it becomes. As there is no room here for language as a carrier of meaning, the phonetical formation of syllables allows the vocal sound to become purely tonal.

A cycle based on savage and partly lost writings; "Die schöne Frau von Thun" uses six instruments, which can be relatively freely chosen; "Tobold" is a compositional concept, formal and extremely variable in its instrumentation (the composer has arranged one version); "Das Mädchen mit den schönen Augen" is the last work before the composer's non-composing phase, maliciously simple, supposedly humorous - it is dedicated to the performer Marion Leyh.

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.
