Trio IX - Accanto
Wolff's great Trio IX – Accanto (2017) is a testament to his long-standing friendship with the musicians. Peculiarly serene and unobtrusively narrative, the piece features many reminiscences and hidden quotations from music by J.S. Bach to union songs. There are also tributes to Wolff's own Exercises, whose more recent numbers can be heard on the album as well.
These Exercises sound lucid and atmospheric, yet complex. Each player has to decide for himself/herself on the course of the musical thoughts and spontaneously put them together in the group as an exercise. Collective agreement for individual positions as a musical and social task. This music by Wolff “still sings a longer modernism”, writes Seth Brodsky. “You can hear the historical horizon in it, not as some grandiose prophecy, but like an outline full of white space. The music is interested in the grace of presentness, of being-here, but it doesn’t lack desire.”
- Marcus Weiss (saxophone)
- Nicolas Hodges (piano)
- Christian Dierstein (percussion)
