Niels Rosing-Schow: Alliage III: Trios

Set of Parts | Trios
Composer Niels Rosing-Schow
Publisher Edition Wilhelm Hansen
Instrumentation Violin, Cello and Accordion

Set of parts for Alliage (Alloy) III for Violin, Cello, Classical Accordion, and two Kokles (2010).

Programme note

The instruments of this quintet are very different in appearance and in the way of playing as well as tone production: strings to be bowed, strings to be plucked confronted with the airborne tone of the Accordion. The origins and the traditions of the instruments are also very diversified reaching from traditional folkmusic (the Kokle) and popular music (the Accordion) to art music of the classical tradition (the Violin and Cello).

Acknowledging these references and connotations I refrain nevertheless from an obvious ‘casting’ of the instruments, since I have always been fascinated by the less evident, by transitions and gradual displacement, by the intangible places between one and the other. I search for this ‘terrain vague’ of fruitfull incertainty andpermanent genesis. To arrive there, I have in this piece created a musical expression, which makes hidden relations and unexploredsonorous paths come forward between the different sound worlds of the instruments. Bringing together these musical substances, I look for something deeper than just common sounds: a fresh musical place. And the lively and bright sound world that emerges form this instrumental and textural ’in-between’ I associate to alloys, inparticular the silvery amalgamations of mercury.

The work was composed to musicians from the Latvian ensemble Altera Veritas and of Ensemble Aleph (France) was a part of the project European Instrumental Laboratory.
