Dream variations

composer

 
Tobias Broström’s Dream variations is in three movements: ‘The dream’, ‘Mirror’ and ‘Déjà vu’. Its resonant percussion soundscape of gongs, vibes, tuned cowbells and other metals sets a somnambulant humidity for highly probing trumpet lines, searching tenderly, sometimes torridly for a way through the tone row. Initially, this group of pitches got stuck in the composer’s brain and he felt the need to 'speak them out loud'. These elements also combine here with Broström’s fascination with the Swedish painter Claes Eklundh, a feeling of unease and equivocation enduring until the very last statement of the theme, in this haunting, haunted work.
