KRISTINE BRATLIE: 3 Concert Etudes
For piano solo av Kristine Bratlie.
The three concert etudes Behind the scenes, Stagedive and Exit are musical metaphors describing the atmosphere in certain stages of life.
Behind the scenes
Our inner room, the private space where the continuous battle between genuine happiness, deep grief and true love takes place.
Discovering of presence and courage by choosing new paths.
The feeling of enlightenment and peace showing that the right choices were made.
The concert etudes are to be played with great passion through personal expression. I started this process by composing the music. In your hands it will develop into a piece of art.
