Unforeseen possibilities of the double bass

Bjørn Ianke was one of those musicians who are always developing, always searching for new ways of expression. Throughout his professional career he worked very hard to expand his own capabilities and gain more repertoire for the solo double bass. Ianke´s eminent technique, his great heart for the instrument and intuitive musical understanding was an inspiration to many composers. Arne Nordheim, Antonio Bilbao and Cecilie Ore are among the people who have written especially for Ianke, challenged and intrigued by the unforeseen possibilities this instrument acquired in his hands.

On this album, Ianke performs works by Arne Nordheim, Åse Hedstrøm, Iannis Xenakis and Henrik Hellstenius. Poetry and drama alternate with lightning speed as the work “Three Stanzas for double bass alone” by Nordheim progresses, and Ianke performs Hedstrøm´s “Touche for double bass” with breathtaking timing and dynamic dimensions. In Xenakis´ “Theraps”, the massive double bass almost disappears in the hands of the performer when the brutality of the thunderous eruptions and violent passages takes centre stage, and Hellstenius´ “Essays sir les temps double” is performed in a manner that makes the double bass sing in a particularly lovely way.
