Description
Triptykon for Percussion and Orchestra was composed by Pelle Gudmundsen-Holmgreen in 1985. Dedicated to Gert Mortensen.


Programme note:
TRIPTYKON is inspired by the visual arts (a triptych is a painting on three panels, hinged side by
side - for instance an altarpiece).
The three movements of TRIPTYKON are composed in an eff ort to create clear contrasts of colour.
The first movement employs only winds in the orchestra, the second movement only strings, and in the
third movement the first two movements are repeated, on top of each other, played simultaneously. Tue
percussion solo part has equally distinctcolours: for the first movement: metal only, for the second
movement: wood only, and then finally in the third movement- together with the orchestral tutti - skin!
Other distinct features in TRIPTYKON are block-like dispositions, polyrhythmic layers and simplicity
of tonal colours. Tue often crude articulation of motifs and the frequent use ofrepetition lend a ritual
character to the music.
TRIPTYKON was composed in close collaboration with percussionist Gert Mortensen and the work is
dedicated to him.
