Notes

  • Program notes: 

    FOUR ON FIVE (Parafrasi.6) is part of a composition cycle for different instruments and chamber ensembles which draws on jazz. That shouldn’t be taken to mean that the pieces are variations on or arrangements of jazz themes in the strict sense of the word, but rather a research into the possibilities of translating the defining elements of jazz into the language of contemporary classical music. The starting point of each work shall be a fragment, a melodic or rhythmical phrase from a certain standard. Or, why not, just a musical gesture or the atmosphere of a certain theme – a chord or a rhythmical formula. The result shall be an autonomous music material, filtered and metamorphosed, but, should the hope and intention of the author come through, still retaining a shadow, a flavor of the initial musical idea. And, implicitly, of the expression and atmosphere of jazz.
