Welcome Welcome to our two concert series Denmark Calling. We are proud to be featuring the music of Danish composers of different generations over the next two weeks. Tonight, we play a set of music by the extraordinarily inventive and original Pelle Gudmundsen-Holmgreen. As well as being an elder statesman of Danish composition, his music and personality displays a continuous energetic curiosity. It’s always been the role of the London Sinfonietta to bring new music to London that needs to be heard far more widely. I’m especially proud we are doing that tonight. We are also very pleased to be presenting this great programme of work that Pelle has composed so recently. The set of pieces works so well as a whole – audiences in Krakow, Copenhagen and Huddersfield have already been hugely moved by the programme. I am grateful to Else Torp of Theatre of Voices who first enthused to us about Pelle’s music. We are also very pleased to be releasing the CD of tonight’s music on Dacapo Records. As well as Arts Council England and the PRS for Music Foundation, I would also like to thank the Danish Arts Council, Danish Composers’ Society and Edition Wilhelm Hansen for their financial support of this project. Enjoy this evening, and do join us for part two on Wednesday 12 March when we perform the music of Simon Steen-Andersen, and others. Andrew Burke @ab2102 Chief Executive, London Sinfonietta

Pelle GudmundsenHolmgreen (b. 1932) had to argue for its existence, and create that existence through a resolve that at any point might disintegrate or be deflated. Soon came minimalism (just three chords provided the material for his 1969 orchestral piece Tricolore IV), a personal kind of symmetrical structure (in a series of works entitled Spejl, or Mirror), quotation, and a rather barren period when Gudmundsen-Holmgreen was in his forties. Since then he has been working as productively as he did in his youth. Major works include Triptykon for orchestra with solo percussionist (1985), collaborations with the Kronos Quartet – Ground (1986), to which he characteristically added Lost Ground (2006), Concerto Grosso (1990) – where the four string players are surrounded by an orchestra of what he calls ‘Jungle Vivaldi’, and concertos for cello and violin. He has also, in a formidable output of music for chorus or small vocal ensemble, rediscovered the innocence that was never truly lost. Image © Jeppe Gudmundsen-Holmgreen
Obstinacy and contrariness seem to have kept Pelle Gudmundsen-Holmgreen going through a creative life that now extends back through sixty years, to a time of innocence in Danish music, before the storms blew in from Germany and New York. Such a turmoil of innovation then, tumbling on a composer in his twenties, was at once exciting and disorienting. Gudmundsen-Holmgreen plunged into the new possibilities of overt construction, particularly rhythmic and formal construction, which made him think of music as made more than felt, as needful absurdity, supreme mischance. Nothing could be taken for granted any more. A work

Exiled In the dedication John Dowland gave his Second Book of Songs or Ayres (1600), he noted he was writing ‘from the court of a foreign prince’. By then he had been two years in the service of the Danish king, Christian IV, an absence that may have given a personal sense to the words he wrote for the book’s second song: ‘Flow my tears, fall from your springs; Exiled for ever, let me mourn where night’s black bird her sad infamy sings’. ‘Exiled’ also in other ways, this song is a classic expression of that feeling of aloneness and estrangement the age called ‘melancholy’. Moreover, the words are doubtful and unstable tenants of music Dowland had written four years earlier as an instrumental pavan, under the title Lachrimae. Now those words and that music, still in Denmark, haunt pieces by Pelle GudmundsenHolmgreen, and find another exile in the 21st century. Play, as it almost must, unfolds a process of restitution and loss through iterations, ostinatos, eruptions and arpeggios. The ending is in A major, and the ‘Flow my tears’ scalewise descent is the outcome of a mirroring ascent, from E to A. As this falls apart, we might be reminded less of Dowland than of Mahler. After Play come two more dismantlings of the Dowland song, drawing on the phrases ‘Flow my tears’ and ‘Down vain lights’. Sound I (2011) is a study in consonants and pulsed rhythm, until ultimately it discovers vowels and pitch: the eternal A, voiced by soprano and alto, then by alto and tenor an octave lower – though the final gesture brings a touch of the composer’s humour. Sound II (2012), beginning from a point shortly before this, is conversely tuned all through and largely made of vowel sounds. There is barely a hint of the Dowland. Song, Play and Company, all written in 2010, are strongly connected in that Song and Play together
form Company. (The composer surely wants us to remember that two of these titles are shared with works by Beckett.) Song starts out on an A, which it occludes with quarter-tones, and then gradually assembles notes and phonemes from the opening lines of the Dowland, especially the phrases ‘Flow my tears’ and ‘Down vain lights’, both set to the descending scale A–G–F–E. Occasionally, to manifest inarticulacy, one of the four voices will choke to a standstill as the throat is closed, but mostly the elements of the song just float and repeat. Stages in the recovery process include an A minor chord, the first connected words and the first direct quotation of music and words together (at ‘night’s black bird’). The coalescence of the original continues until Dowland’s whole beginning is restored, but in A major, which curiously sounds more fragile than the true A minor. Then, almost inevitably, the image dissolves. Run and Turn II, both of which date from 2012, may perhaps be regarded as satellites of the Flow my tears cycle, or else as exiles from it, for they do not allude to the song directly. Run is for a line-up of low wind instruments (bass clarinet, contrabassoon, trombone), two percussion players and solo string quintet, with the double bass allied with the wind and percussion to suggest a growling jazz group that has a string quartet in tow. Turn II, besides bringing in voices, fields bass flute, guitar, harp and percussion, and so adds most of the remaining instruments, leaving only the horn yet to appear. Hot from the outset, and dark, Run gains a glimpse of clarity in a quick arpeggio of violin harmonics and moves into a slower section of trombone verses accompanied by bass clarinet, though with the pulsation of the opening still flickering in the background. Its might restored, it goes on through bumps and restarts to recover, twice, the low B flat on which the trombone

entered at the beginning. There is restlessness all through – an impression, perhaps, that the instruments are not altogether willing team players but pull and push in different harmonic directions. This is even more the case at the beginning of Turn II, which expands a 1993 piece for soprano, bass flute, guitar and harp, and which, unlike Run, features quarter tones and unusual effects (most of all on the bass flute). Three instrumental lines – from guitar, bass flute and percussion, entering in that order – seem to be tugging as much apart as together, each with its own worries. The guitar, for instance, is drawn to C on the treble staff, a note it reiterates in its opening gambit, the whole of which it repeats now and then. At the second repetition the harp enters and also the first voice, a soprano chanting vowel sounds, one per note, always on the beat. Regularity here, of mode and rhythm, could hardly be more in contrast with the continuing instrumental jumble, and yet the voice appears integrated into its context. Two things unalike are in the same space. And so it remains as other voices are introduced, and as these move into a new set of vowels and notes. Finally, though, with the scoring returning to that of the original Turn, voice and instruments are in accord. Turning and turning, the music has become increasingly diatonic, to the point where the soprano can keep cadencing on the note, A, from which Flow my tears and all its derivatives here assembled depend. Heard conjoined as Company, both Song and Play are recognizably the same, of course, but also
entirely different. Play now has a defined object for its energy in Song, which it by turns instigates, bolsters and obtrudes, and Song now rides the waves of an audible storm. The ending, which in both Song and Play was a farewell, is now much more an arrival, of music no longer in exile. © Paul Griffiths
Programme note The works played at this concert are related in different ways. Run and Turn II are based on the same very limited musical material (symmetrical tone grids). Run is connected to the following pieces rhythmically. The overall programme is composed as a sort of suite that connects some of the ideas used in the last piece Company. All titles are to be taken literally – and in my opinion this is what needs to be said about the programme. © Pelle Gudmundsen-Holmgreen

London Sinfonietta Making new music The London Sinfonietta’s mission is to place the best contemporary classical music at the heart of today’s culture; engaging and challenging the public through inspiring performances of the highest standard, and taking risks to develop new work and talent. The ensemble is Resident Orchestra at Southbank Centre with its headquarters at Kings Place. Since its foundation in 1968, the London Sinfonietta’s commitment to making new music has seen it commission over 300 works, and premiere many hundreds more. Famed for its pioneering education initiatives, it continues to involve young people and the public in its work. The core of the London Sinfonietta is 18 Principal Players, representing some of the best solo and ensemble musicians in the world. The ensemble has just launched its Emerging Artists Programme, which will give professional musicians at the start of promising and brilliant careers the opportunity to work alongside those Principal Players on stage across the season. The London Sinfonietta’s recordings present a catalogue of the finest new music, including the recent release of Philip Cashian’s Piano Concerto on NMC Recordings and Pelle Gudmundsen Holmgreen’s Mixed Company with Theatre of Voices on Dacapo.
Events This spring we forge ahead into music of the 21st century, focusing on commissions and premieres from Pelle Gudmundsen-Holmgreen, Simon Steen-Andersen and Michel van der Aa that have grown out of close relationships forged with partners in Denmark and Holland.
New music We have commissioned over 20 pieces of new music for the 2013/14 season. Nine form part of our Writing the Future scheme, which pairs emerging composers with Principal Players to develop new chamber compositions, and were premiered at The New Music Show in December 2013. A series of other commissions are being released as Sinfonietta Shorts downloads: bitesized pieces of new music by the best composers of our time. This year we also expand the Blue Touch Paper programme, in order to further experiment with interdisciplinary art. In May 2014 we’ll explore the results in two events: a dance collaboration and our annual new work night at Village Underground.
Take part This season there are concerts for schools to inspire pupils and teachers with the music of today, and original public performances by teenagers from Kings Cross as part of the KX Collective. The London Sinfonietta Academy continues into its sixth year, and at the start of summer 2014 the UK’s most talented young players will have the chance to learn side-by-side with our Principal Players at an intensive week-long course, culminating in a public performance. The London Sinfonietta Academy will also provide the foremost route into the new Emerging Artists Programme. Then there are open calls to the public (that’s you!) to take part across the season in person and online, culminating in a mass participation event at Southbank Centre in June 2014.
Two concerts celebrating Danish music in London The London Sinfonietta has championed the work of Danish composers across Europe in recent years. This March, two events bring this brilliant music back to you at home, starting with this evening’s concert of works by Pelle Gudmundsen-Holmgreen. The series culminates on Wednesday 12 March at Southbank Centre’s Queen Elizabeth Hall with music by Simon Steen-Andersen, who leads the cohort of younger artists now defining the Danish cutting edge. We take on Black Box Music - an extraordinary example of his style that demonstrates why he has been performed widely across Europe already. A pair of hands is thrust inside a black box; the hands’ gestures are projected live onto the stage, directing an ensemble of musicians that surround the audience.
Secondary Schools Concert: Musical Snapshots Black Box Music will also be performed at the London Sinfonietta’s Secondary Schools Concert on Wednesday 12 March alongside works demonstrating contemporary compositional techniques such as Steve Reich’s Electric Counterpoint. The concert will also showcase a new commission performed by the KX Collective, a group of young people from the King’s Cross area who have a passion for exploring and creating new music. Visit londonsinfonietta.org.uk/events for more information.
Steen-Andersen’s video piece RunTime Error is a tour de force. Made from a pre-recorded film of the composer racing through the aisles and backstage spaces of Queen Elizabeth Hall, SteenAndersen replays and manipulates the footage live with two joysticks. The Danish theme continues on Friday 28 and Saturday 29 March in a collaboration between SNYK / Danish Composers’ Society and Sound and Music. Two exciting days at Cafe OTO feature contemporary, experimental music and sound art from British and Danish composers.
With thanks to the Danish Arts Council Committee for Performing Arts, the Danish Composers’ Society’s Production Pool / KODA’s Fund for Social and Cultural Purposes and Edition Wilhelm Hansen for their support of the Denmark Calling series.
