Info

The main theme in this piece was actually not 'composed' by ThomasTrachsel himself but by his daughter Olivia. In a very dreamy moment she sung the little melody to the tune of a clarinet.  Trachsel was so intrigued that he unconditionally had to take it for this theme from which he developed the individual movements.
Whereas the first movement (Introduction) is rather worn, the second movement is developed for a very stomping dance. The third movement is a powerful chant that combines OIivia’s melody and the other themes of the project which leads to the great and powerful sound.
The work was commissioned by  the Lucerne Cantonal Music Association.
