Ajean : trio for violin, violoncello and harp / Paul Sarcich.
by Paul Sarcich (2004)
Ajean is a trio for violin, cello and harp written as a homage to Jean Sibelius, whose music I find an inexhaustible source of fascination. I don't think it possible that one could ever reach a point where one could say "I know Sibelius": his works are capable of infinite relistening, and each relistening throws up more questions, opens more doors, requires further listening. As clear as they may appear on one occasion, on another they come across as hugely mysterious.
The start material for Ajean comes from two bars of the introductory section of his Violin Concerto, one of the most unique in the repertoire. This material is developed through a double harmonic cycle, throwing up "variations" of great variety and secondary constructions along the way.
