for Orchestra, Choir, Bigband and Video
Duration ca. 48 min.
A symphony orchestra and a large choir are confronted with a big band, and all three are put into perspective by historic footage of their predecessors in concert and rehearsal from the first decades of public tv. A game of identity, style and time, remixing the newly digitalised television archives and celebrating the three traditional musical pillars of the major European, public tv stations.
All used material was found in the South West German Radio archives with the exception of the sound of a wax cylinder from 1888 with the worlds first recording of a large orchestra and a choir.
TRIO was co-commissioned by Donaueschinger Musiktage and the Danish National Symphony Orchestra, premiered at the Donaueschingen Festival on the 18th of October 2019.
