Sanguine Sand


Instrumentation: percussion, harp, harpsichord, piano, 2 violins, viola, cello.

Durata: 8’17

Premiere: 16th of November 2003, at Dieselverkstaden, Nacka, by Curious Chamber Players and conductor Rei Munakata

Comment: I founded Curious Chamber Players in 2003, together with conductor Rei Munakata and percussionist Martin Strand, and this was the piece I composed for the premiere concert of the ensemble.

Program note:
I associate the timbre of the instruments in the original setting of CCP with dry sand at the seashore, which can suddenly change appearance and mood, depending on the forces of the sea.

Score and parts: contact the composer
