Notes

  • Wedding
  • Kärleks-Vals
  • Passacaglia
  • Living Stones

These four pieces were written between 1992 and 2014. All inspired somehow by love (human or divine; fictional or real), they are brought together here for the first time. Two of the pieces were conceived purely as concert music from the outset, while the other couple have multimedia connotations: Passacaglia was originally written for a play, and Wedding was inspired by – and can be presented with – my parents’ wedding video.

‘”wedding” … is based on church bell changes, higher faster ringing for the right hand and slower lower for the left. “kärleks-vals“… is relatively tuneful with more brittle percussive upper leaps for the right hand. “living stones” sounds brittle and shiny like the jewels it describes before moving on to softer vaporous playing. “passacaglia” marries together an early music form and its spirit along with unashamed modernism and a concentration on ornamentation.’ (Alan Cooper, British Music E-News, February 2019)

The works feature on a 2017 CD ‘Living Stones’ release by Sargasso.
