Transference

for flute, clarinet, violin, cello and piano

2010   ca. 10'   pub: Composers Edition

This music is linked to a previous work of mine called transitions (2000) for violin, clarinet, cello and piano. I was interested in both the notion of transferring and the state of being transferred. (In psychoanalysis transference denotes an unconscious redirection of feelings from one person to another: usually a redirection of feelings and desires from the past towards a new object in the present.). Seven fragments from transitions have been revaluated and transformed by the original ensemble with the addition of a flute, while a new emphasis is put on the temporal relations and the process of compression and expansion that characterized both works. Transference was commissioned by the Modern Art Sextet, Berlin.
