Arnold Schoenberg was not averse to the occasional catchy phrase, either, when he wrote that Brahms had put “new wine into old bottles”. The latter’s Clarinet Trio op.114, written in 1891, is at the centre of this album. The composer Bernhard Lang refers directly to Brahms in his Monadologie XXVII, as he extrapolates cells from the trio in a kind of mechanical adaptation.

The Chinese word “san” to which the title refers means “three” or, as a verb, “to scatter”.
