(from Scénes, V.87 #13)
for solo trombone
Another in a continuing series of solo concert etudes for every instrument, Accelerandi is structured around the notes of the three octotonic scales, arranged in 3 octaves within the trombone’s register, with durations derived from the Fibonacci Sequence. The pitches are also audibly distinguished by octave: the low octave pitches are all attacked sforzando, the middle octave piano and the high octave forte. Structurally the piece is set in 5 cycles of pitches, each using a diminishing note value of a base duration, which in turn diminishes with every new cycle.
