Periferien #4: Jennifer Torrence + Joachim Carr

Jennifer Torrence presenterer tre sentrale solostykker for slagverk fra det 20. århundret. Alle verkene har en improvisatorisk og søkende karakter til felles, som utforsker små detaljer i klangen, fra den åpne formen i Karlheinz Stockhausens ‘Zyklus’ (1959), via den lavmælte lydverdenen i Morten Feldmans ‘The King of Denmark’ (1964), til Helmut Lachenmanns taktile utforskning av slagverksinstrumentene i ‘Intérieur I’ (1965–66). 

Også Ludwig van Beethovens 15. sonate (op. 28), som fremføres av pianisten Joachim Carr, har noe av dette meditative preget. Den utstrakte bruken av pedaltoner gir musikken et sirkulært preg, som om den står på stedet hvil. Den 30. sonaten (op. 109), hvor den avsluttende variasjonssatsen tar desidert størst plass, presenteres et stillfarent, vakkert tema som for hver variasjon utvikles mer og mer til det ugjenkjennelige, og som til slutt antar fantastiske dimensjoner.

Program:
Karlheinz Stockhausen: Zyklus (1959)
Morton Feldman: The King of Denmark (1964)
Helmut Lachenmann: Interiur I (1965-66)
Ludwig van Beethoven: Klaversonate 15 (op. 28) og 30 (op. 109)
