VAE (1998) is a work composed specially for and dedicated to the swedish trombone player Ivo Nilsson. 
As the title indicates the work is a lamento characterised by an intensive and dramatic, yet soft and shaded 
development of the musical/sound material. 
Build up on the alternance between parlando-rubato and strictly measured parts, using a musical language 
made up of a microtonal intonation in fusion with an ornamentic unfolding of the rhythm, as well as a shifting 
use of the mutes, VAE recalls the sound world of the eastern-european folklore.
