Schattenspie(ge)l ('Shadow play/shadow mirror'), a trio for
violin, cello and piano, was composed in 2006 to a commission from the
'Trio Caleidoscopio'. It is dedicated to Rudolf Kelterborn on his 75th
birthday, and also to Primoz Novsak, Thomas Grossenbacher and Keiko
Tamura, who gave the world première on 19 November 2006 at a Chamber
Music Subscription Concert in the Zurich Tonhalle.
Schattenspie(ge)l alludes to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's Piano
Trio in G Major, KV 564, as well as to the Second Piano Trio in E Minor
by Dmitri Shostakovich. These two works are not quoted in a manner that
the ear can hear, however; they are merely present, structurally, in the
background. The four contrasting movements are derived from the same
basic cell, possess the same formal structure, and they together form a
unity on account of the many cross-references between them.
The genesis of Mendelssohn's string quintets is closely connected to his
friend Eduard Rietz and the latter's brother Julius. Deeply affected by
Eduard's death in 1832, Mendelssohn exchanged the "Minuetto" movement
in his A major Quintet op. 18, written six years previously, for a newly
composed adagio. It was in this form that the work was fi nally sent to
the publisher. The Quintet in B flat major was only published after
Mendelssohn's death; numerous, unauthorized entries by Julius Rietz thus
found their way into performance practice.
