Per Nørgård MOMENTUM - Cello Concerto No. 2 Notes on notation and special features 1) Accidentals Supplementing the traditional accidentals, you will find in this piece the following accidentals, which have to do with quarter tone alterations: quarter-tones above ordinary pitch:

one quarter-tone above

A few times an alteration (lowering) of a sixth tone is called for, emulating the pitch of the “natural seventh”. This alteration is indicated by an accidental with an arrow (or half arrow) attached, along with the written indication “1/6”:

quarter-tones below ordinary pitch:

three quarter-tones above

one quarter-tone below

three quarter-tones below

1/6 all producing (s.r.): 1/6 harmonic stops: 0

(natural 7th harmonic)

( ) G string

2) “quasi flageoletto” (mvt. 1, bar 20): a very light finger pressure is called for, to produce a thin, harmonic-like tone, or rather a whispering tone or noise.

3) Harmonics The sounding note (suone reale) is given at the top of the “chord”: In the middle is the diamond note, indicating the harmonic stop (light finger touch): At the bottom is the ordinary stop:

0

If the ordinary stop is an open string, like here, then this note is sometimes left out. Instead you may find a Roman numeral to indicate on which string the harmonic is played (E=I, A=II, D=III, G= IV).

4) “Passive Improvisation” (mvt. 1, bar 109): The soloist and the vibraphone player should play together with optimal interference, i.e. producing as many “beat tones” between themselves as possible. The vibraphone player should be assisted by a member of the ensemble who may vary the speed of the vibraphone fan during this cadenza-like section. 5) “Repetitive Improvisation” (mvt. 4, bar 90): The soloist improvises on the material given in each “Senza misura” box (1-6), always starting with the basic interval of the box. This interval will be echoed (also in ¼ tones) in the ensemble.

Per Nørgård MOMENTUM Cello Concerto No. 2 2007-2009 for Cello Solo and Chamber Orchestra

Preface / Programne Note Carl Nielsen, greatest of Danish composers, once commented on titles of musical works, at the same time justifying their function and minimizing their importance: “A title may be seen as a kind of road sign into music’s own domain”, Nielsen said. As such a “road sign” into the purely musical world of the present cello concerto, I at last settled for the title MOMENTUM. This “sign post” should point the listener in the direction of a process, which gains in strength and velocity as the work progresses. There is an expansion with respect to dynamics as well as tempi going on throughout the work, a continuos accumulating energetic expression. The second movement came first; I wrote it for cellist Jakob Kullberg – my brillant interpreter and good friend – and his wife-to-be Gudrun, the original manuscript to be presented to them as a gift on their wedding day in August 2007. To no one’s surprise I called this movement Together (Tilsammen). Meanwhile, as the composing of the concerto progressed, I developed the concept of a series of (social) states, from oneness to manyness – from being alone in isolation to sharing in company. Thus I put in front, as the first movement, a soliloquy, a Monologue – which is not really a solo piece, rather a movement in which all impulses emerge from the cello solo. In the third movement the energy almost becomes a frenzy, a hyper-energetic music. The movement is entitled Multiplicity. The accumulation: one – two – many – all, culminates in the fourth movement, in which fractal tone rows point towards infinity, and the movement is accordingly entitled: Infinity. The cello solo part is extremely demanding, not least the aspect that requires the soloist to constantly change expression, from introvert reclusiveness to extrovert leadership. Per Nørgård, 2009
