Programme Notes

Tampere Raw was commissioned by the Swedish Royal Academy of Music in 1991 for Swedish musicians Martin Fröst and Roland Pöntinen to be premiered at the Tampere Biennale for young soloists that year.

The music alternates between  2 different characters: one slowly flowing texture, composed completely intuitively, and one fast, fiercely rhythmical and pulsative texture, where the tone material for the most part is generated from permutations of prime-number series.

The fast parts - written mostly in rhythmical unison - are extremely demanding for both performers, with wide leaps in register and dynamics as an outstanding feature.

The piece has been widely performed all over the world and is recorded on BIS CD-693 ¨French Beauties and Swedish Beasts¨ with Fröst/Pöntinen performing.
