  • Description:

    Kai' was written in memory of Kai Scheffler, principal cellist and a key member of the Ensemble Modern in Germany, who died tragically young in 1989. The 18 minute work is in four continuous movements and leads the performers from an aggressive opening through many contrasting sections, often distinctly jazz influenced, to a slow final requiem. The solo part is almost exclusively lyrical, stretching out long, mournful lines over an accompaniment which, in contrast, can be abrupt and claustrophobic. This is a challenging and fantastically rewarding work which has established itself in the core of the contemporary cello repertoire / `Kai` entstand im Andenken an Kai Scheffler, dem ersten Cellisten und zentralen Mitglied des Ensemble Modern in Deutschland, nach dessen tragisch frhem Tod 1989. Das 18mintige Werk besteht aus vier zusammenhngenden Stzen und fhrt die Spieler von einem aggressiven Beginn durch viele gegenstzliche, oft eindeutig jazzinspirierte Abschnitte zu einem langsamen Schlussrequiem. Die Solostimme ist fast ausschlielich lyrisch eingesetzt und spannt ihre weiten, trauererfllten Bgen ber der manchmal aggressiven, klaustrophobischen Begleitung. Dieses Stck ist ein herausforderndes und uerst lohnenswertes Werk, das sich im Herzen des zeitgenssischen Cellorepertoires etabliert hat
