Toelichting:
Program note (English): [Première: 4-11-2000 - Ganderkesee, Bremen - Trio Eroica] - This piece continues my preoccupation with writing for period instruments. Rather than being merely an intermediate stage in the ineluctable evolution of the modern instrument, the period instrument is a complete and perfect entity in its own right. I have exploited for colouristic, stylistic and expressive potential of such instruments in previous pieces, notably my Philibuster for fortepiano (1993). Palimpsest, deriving from the Greek, describes a manuscript on which there are two texts, one of which is written on top of the other. A more striking image is that of a painting upon which a later work of art has been superimposed or, indeed, the ruins of an ancient building from whose rubble a shiny modern edifice rises like a sphinx from the ashes. The base layer of this piece consists of the Kegelstadt Trio of Mozart (KV 493) for clarinet, viola and piano; a piece which featured large in my childhood. Upon the formal
plan of the first movement I have superimposed my own material almost (but not quite) entirely obliterating the original. Adherence to the formal structure of the original is strictly observed to form a single extended sonata from arch. Thus the new construction, although of modern materials utilising contemporary building techniques, is nevertheless built following the contours of the original foundations. The piece is tautly strung between a sequence of 96 chords deriving from pitch material from the second movement of the Mozart transformed using group-theoretical techniques pioneered in some way of my earlier works. The thematic material is based, perhaps more loosely, upon the third movement. In this way the whole Mozart trio is present in one way or another in this piece. In places where the fabric is worn, traces of the underlying work come to the surface, distorted with age and strangely new in the unfamiliar context. - Richard Sims
