about

KammarensembleN was founded in 1984 in Stockholm, Sweden as a contemporary music ensemble consisting of virtuoso instrumentalists. Ever since, the ensemble has developed into an important forum for both young and established Swedish composers. In collaboration with composers, directors, lighting designers and video artists, KammarensembleN has performed in several acclaimed Swedish concert series as well as in international contemporary music festivals such as music Autumn in Odense, Sonorities in Belfast, Ultima Oslo, Gaudeamus Festival in Amsterdam, The Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, Time of Music festival in Viitasaari , Warsaw Autumn and the ISCM World Music Days in Stockholm and Hong Kong. KammarensembleN has released several critically acclaimed CDs on various labels.


Loss (Track 1)
by Per Mårtensson (born 1967)


Umgebene Gestalt (Track 2)
for Trombone and Chamber Ensemble
by Chrichan Larson (born 1956)

Umgebene Gestalt was commissioned 2007 by the Swedish National Concert Institute for Jonas Bylund and Das Neue Ensemble, Hannover, Germany. The piece can be described as one possible reading of a rotating pattern which, like a map, permits several imaginable paths. Building of segments, rhythmic figures, harmony and melody reflect the structure of the pattern, which initially is the result of a superposition of different pulses, speeds. The surrounding ensemble is divided into four groups; a piano, a wind quartet sustained by a vibraphone, a string trio and a bass group. The piece is in eight movements played in a continuous flow, attacca.


Ici est ailleurs (Här är annorstädes) (Tracks 3-8)
by Madeleine Isaksson (born 1956)


Doppler Wobbler (Tracks 9-13)
Double concerto for Viola, Bassoon and ensemble (2011)
by Ivo Nilsson (born 1966)

When composing this Double concerto, I imagined the two soloists being planets rotating at different speeds around a star (represented by the ensemble). And when looking for information about how planets orbit, I found out that there is a method called Doppler wobble used to find planets in other solar systems;
It is based on the fact that a planet exerts a slight Gravitational pull on its parent star. This causes the parent star to "wobble" and the velocity of this wobble depends on the mass of the planet and the distance at which it orbits from the parent star. The motion can be detected by using the Doppler effect, due to the motion having an effect of the spectrum of light emitted from the star. As the planet moves towards the point of observation, (in this case the Earth) the parent star is further away which stretches the wavelengths out and shifts them towards to red end of the spectrum; red-shift. The reverse happens as the planet moves away from the Earth; the parent star is closer to the Earth, compressing the wavelengths of emitted light and shifting them towards the blue end of the spectrum; blue-shift. The shifts in the spectrum are called Doppler Shifts, giving the method its name. Measurements of the stars spectrum are taken over time and then studied to see if these shifts indicate the presence of a planet.

This Double Concerto has four movements:

1. Vortice = Wirvel
2. Orbite = Orbits
3. Scintille = Electrical breakdown
4. Conto alla rovesca = Count-down
