Chant (2008) 15′

for Bass Clarinet and Tenor Trombone

«Chant» for bass clarinet and tenor trombone was commissioned by Oslo Chamber Music Festival in 2008. It was composed in close collaboration with Rolf Borch and Marius Hesby. The title refers both to a monotonous and repetitive song, and to the fact that in the last section, the trombone part consists of almost more singing than trombone playing.

Commissioned by Oslo Chamber Music Festival with support from Arts Council Norway.

First performance by Rolf Borch (bass clarinet) and Marius Hesby (trombone) August 19, 2008 in Slottskapellet, Oslo.
