For several years, I was busy with reflecting on composition techniques and style and this is reflected in my five-movement orchestral work – Concerto for Orchestra – written in 1995. The opening movement of the Concerto is something of a baroque “intrada” and is scored exclusively for 4 trumpets and percussion. The 2nd movement introduces clusters, both narrow and wide. The title of the 3rd movement is derived from the principle of constant merging and separation of voices. Dynamically oscillating sounds form the basis of the 4th movement. The 5th movement is a finale, some elements from previous movements are elaborated again and new ones are added. Through mounting ascending chords, a quotation from Wagner and a trombone trumpet cadenza the movement reaches its climax, after which it dies away in pianissimo.
