Combinations on Olympus: (2007)
EN Combinations on Olympus The work for solo trombone was inspired by Greek mythology. The piece consists of four sections based on the classical forms used in: the invocation, song, dance and epitaph. With the exception of the epitaph, they are constantly interrupted by the contemporary way of narration, which, as it were, breaks in upon the classical order. Thus a dialogue between the past and the present develops. Despite the presence of ritual elements, I do not wish to include any religious implications here. This is just another attempt to express the world existing in our imagination.
First performance: 6.11.2007 Kraków
