"Holz – Knochen – Öl" [Wood – Bone – Oil] is a poetic and dramatic cycle that does not only sound like a study on the composition of diverse materials. Composer Enno Poppe tells a story of growth and decay. Whereas wood is a living and growing material, bone promises growth, then stability, firmness and – as a memento mori – death. Oil, in contrast, being a residue of past life, warns us of transience, millennia of decay, while also serving as a source of energy that imparts new life.
"Holz – Knochen – Öl" is also a work on tradition and modernism; on the possibility of writing a solo concerto, today; on the question whether the concept of melody can be actualized in avant-garde music; and on harmonic procedures based on mathematical operations.
