- INTENSITY (2002)
My worksí titles are almost always
suggesting an explanation of my works.
E.g.: Pulse-Impulse, Flux, Aspirale,
Verso, High Anxiety etc.
Density-Intensity can be best described
as a music build up on a unfolding of dense structures,
filled up with an intense rhythmic-melodic
Density-Intensity can also be seen
as an alternation between the two contrasting motivic elements of the work:
the dense rhythmic textures, and
the intense melodic layers.
I am always fascinated by the rich
expression possibilities of the woodwinds but also their versatility.
Which explains partly the virtuous
parts of the clarinets and saxophones.
But the density of the woodwinds
is combined with the intensity of the brass and the strings,
building up a strong and balanced
flow of the work.
Density-Intensity is especially
composed for the International Composition Prize,
Luxembourg 2003, and it is dedicated
to the Luxembourg Sinfonietta and its leader, Marcel Wengler.
DENSITY - INTENSITY has been awarded
with the 3rd prize at the International Composition Prize,
