Work information

Der finnische Komponist Osmo Tapio Rihl berichtet, dass er whrend der Arbeit an seinem Hornkonzert im Jahr 2011 eine Phase erlebte, in der er das Gefhl hatte, in ein totes Ende zu gelangen. Um hier Abhilfe zu schaffen, entschloss er sich, eine Art Fingerbung fr Komponisten zu entwickeln, vergleichbar dem Aufwrmprozess eines Instrumentalsolisten vor einem Auftritt. Rihl erinnert sich weiter: Instead of writing for orchestra, I started a short solo piece for clarinet. Little did I know that I had opened a Pandoras box! I wrote Soliloque 1: toff in two days. Perhaps this frenzy made the music to become restless, quick in turns, and in short a pretty virtuosic etude. The clarinet is seeking for paths, at first without success, but in the end obviously finding one. And what about the Pandoras box? I had given the title the number one, and during the next two years I wrote five more Soliloques, solos of six to seven minutes, for various instruments, and one for soprano a cappella. The title toff means rich, or well rounded, but also fabric or even a patch and I felt that I had patched something in my work that was broken, and indeed: working on the concerto, I now had a fresh start.

The Finnish composer Osmo Tapio Rihl reports that he experienced a phase whilst working on his Horn Concerto in 2011 during which he had the feeling of having landed in a deadend. To find a remedy, he decided to develop a kind of finger exercise for composers, comparable to the warming-up process of an instrumental soloist before performing. Rihl remembers furthermore: Instead of writing for orchestra, I started a short solo piece for clarinet. Little did I know that I had opened a Pandoras box! I wrote Soliloque 1: toff in two days. Perhaps this frenzy caused the music to become restless, with quick turns in short, a rather virtuosic etude. The clarinet seeks paths, at first without success, but obviously finding one in the end. And what about the Pandoras Box? I had given the title the number one, and during the next two years I wrote five more Soliloques, solos of six to seven minutes, for various instruments, as well as one for soprano a cappella. The title toff means rich, or well rounded, but also fabric or even a patch - and I felt that I had patched something in my work that was broken; indeed, working on the concerto now gave me a fresh start.
