Programme Note
Rolf Wallin Frap (1998)
When the Safri Duo asked me to write a short opener for their concerts, I was delighted. After their awe inspiring interpretation of my first commission for them, 'Twine', I knew I could write virtually anything, and they'd do it with the utmost elegance. It's also nice every once in a while not to be so dead serious and so Wagnerian and time consuming.

I had fun writing this piece. More than being deep art, it is a game exploring togetherness and not-togetherness.

By the way: FRAP is (of course) an anglification of the French word frapper, to hit.
