On the 9th of November last year we released the CD "Eyktime". It was a lovely process leading to the release, and we are proud of the CD and the reviews that have followed.
One of the composers represented on the CD is Ole Buck from Denmark. After the release we sent the CD to him. A few weeks later we got an email. The subject line was "thanks for the CD" and in the mail was attached a new piece of music for recorder and guitar! We immediately started to rehearse it and have had great pleasure of playing it together. The piece is called "For recorder and guitar written for Christina Lauridsen and Peter Oldrup"
"Ole Bucks style is characterized by "poetic concretistic minimalism". Concretistic because the music is formed of few notes and simple rules, poetic because Buck still manage to create life and development with the limited means."
This is particularly true for this work. The guitar plays the same pattern through the first 100 bars and the recorder has many repeating figures, but it never seems static, more improvised.
We have decided to celebrate our one year anniversary of our CD, with an "online premiere" of this new piece of music. We have in the last few weeks been working to record the work, and making a video.
The piece was recorded with the help of Leif Hesselberg (http://www.hesselbergrecording.dk/
) and the video we have recorded at Bagsvaerd lake on a lovely autumn day.
