Four Pieces for violoncello and accordion

[2001] | duration: 14’00”

Martin Lichtfuss has been attracted by the combination of the string sound with that of the accordion since his Interferences from 1988. In the duo formation, it becomes particularly clear how two instruments can mutually illuminate and “recolor” each other.

In addition to the timbral dimension, various forms of interplay are explored in the present four pieces. Specifically, free improvisatory parts repeatedly merge into regular metrical sequences which can then dissolve in turn. Behind the quasi aleatoric passages, virtual harmonies serve as “binders” that become increasingly perceptible with the rhythmic consolidation.
