The Score is written in CPreface / Programme NoteINCONTRI is a kind of orchestral prelude presenting some of the orchestra’s timbralpossibilities. The timbres of the instrument groups emerge either clear on their ownor in various blends. There are no doublings between the three main groups – winds,strings and percussion – each group maintains its own individual character, evenduring the encounters; as in a forest where different kinds of birds continue theirterritorial song without yielding or altering their signals.The joint musical project is not unlike a Baroque concerto grosso, not only in theway the form plays the groups off against each other, but also in the musical languageitself.I have previously written a concerto grosso which I called ”Jungle Baroque” becauseof its savage and wild sounds. The same thing can be said about INCONTRI – bydegrees.Pelle Gudmundsen-Holmgreen
