Description

The fascination of Snatches of a Conversation, composed by Eötvös for the Europäischer Musikmonat 2001 in Basle, lies in the use of a double bell trumpet which allows the soloist to alternate rapidly between different mutes. The piece lives up to its name: ’English words were chosen for the noise-maker, containing a lot of sibilants. They are all to be whispered into the microphone, in somewhat voiced sounds. Most of the texts are nonsense, and the audience should hear the words as if somebody would play a hi-hat’, or as if they were snatches of a conversation. (Peter Eötvös, performance instructions) The entertaining sound potpourri made up of verbal fragments fascinates by virtue of subtle wit and playful ease.
