Programme Note

SPELL (1973) – Trio Nr. 2 for clarinet, cello and piano.

Spell was composed in 1973 (for the American Montagnana Trio), at the same time as I was working with my Symphony No. 3 (1972-75).
The English title “Spell” refers to “spelling” with notes, where small groups of notes are repeated and turned by means of gradual alterations in the accents – until a new melodic pattern has emerged – but also to the idea of “enchantment”.
