Programme Note
Bent Sørensen L'Isola della Citta (2015)
Tre solister samler sig i en trio, der så bliver en sammensat solist. Et kammerensemble omkranset af et orkester – en ø midt i byen.

Værket er i fem satser, der spilles helt sammenkædede uden egentlige pauser. Tre korte satser – et præludium, et intermezzo og en afskedssats lægger sig omkring og imellem den sammensatte andensats – der indledes med noget for mig så mærkeligt som en klaverfuga – og den heftige og scherzoagtige fjerde sats. I alle satserne forsøger øen at slippe fri fra byens skygger – trioen søger væk fra orkestret. Tydeligst i den sidste sats – femte sats – hvor trioen lige så stille og indadvendt glider af sted og ud af orkesterets overdøvende skygger.

L’Isola della Cittá – ”Øen i Byen” er skrevet til Trio con Brio på bestilling af Danmarks Radio, Trondheim Symfoniorkester og Trondheim Kammermusikfestival.


Programme Note (in english)


Three soloists gather into one trio, which then becomes one compound soloist. A chamber ensemble surrounded by an orchestra – an island in the middle of the city.

The Triple Concerto is in five movements that are linked together and played without intermissions. Three short movements – a prelude, an intermezzo and a farewell – position themselves around in between the diverse second movement, which is initiated by something as strange – for me – as a piano fugue, and the impetuous and scherzo-like fourth movement. In all movements the island tries to escape from the city’s shadows – the trio seeks to escape the orchestra. In the fifth movement the trio’s yearning to get away from the orchestra is obvious as it silently and introverted glides away and out of the orchestra’s noisy shadows.

L’Isola della Cittá – The Island in the City is written for Trio con Brio and commissioned by The Danish Radio Symphony Orchestra and Trondheim Chamber Music Festival.
