Programme Note

’Concertino for chamber ensemble’ was composed in May 1999 for the Esbjerg Ensemble to whom it is also dedicated. The two groups of the ensemble - winds and strings - meet each other in
a concertating play along with and against each other - with the drums in the middle to control the battle. The piece - which is in one movement - is subject to the unity of time in the sense that it is urged by a rhythmic motor, which is ticking from beginning to end. A pulse and a tempo. The composition borrows traits of the classic sonata form - and it is own way it tries to - during the continuous conversation of the instruments - to blow life, drama and pleasure in a rhythmic structure - and get the music moving.
