About

The three concerti on this disc were written in three consecutive years, all to commission. Another point they have in common is that each work takes as its starting point some kind of programme, which significantly determined both the method of composition and the sound. Eötvös also drew freely on his own musical and extra-musical experiences in depicting the dramatic situations, and presenting emotional states, using illustrative musical elements.

Seven, a violin concerto written in 2006, is in memory of the seven astronauts who died in the tragic accident of space shuttle Columbia on 1 February 2003. Levitation reflects on Péter Eötvös’ recurrent childhood dream of rising up in a kneeling position, gliding through the air, over the objects on the ground.

The basic idea for CAP-KO (an abbreviation of Concerto for Acoustic Piano, Keyboard and Orchestra) is a texture Bartók was fond of and often used in his piano concertos.

The Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra plays Seven and Cap-ko.
