Ölflecke auf dem Wasser ( Oil spots on the water )

This is my second Wind Quintet. The first one ("Strangepreludes and double canon") was written in 1992, this one in 2003 andthere are numerous sketches (even complete movements) for a third one.

The title Oil spots on the water doesn't have much withecological issues, but rather with those abstract, colourful, poly-semanticshapes of small oil spots on asphalt, especially when it rains.

The Wind Quintet Ölflecke auf dem Wasser was selected in 2003in a shortlist of 31 among 270 compositions for the project "NeueKammermusik für Musikschulen" (New chamber music for music schools) bythe Verband deutscher Musikschulen (Association of German Schools ofMusic) in Bonn, Germany.

In October 2004 this piece, together with two other pieces by thesame composer, received first prize at the Bremer Komponistenwettweberborganised by the Council of the Music (Landsmusikrat) in Bremen,Germany.

Ölflecke auf dem Wasser was first performed on 10th July 2004 at the CastleSonderhausen in Germany by the Wind Quintet of the Music School "CarlSchroeder" of Sonderhausen: Eva-Maria Albrecht (flute), MalteSchneegaß (oboe), Antje Eckstein (clarinet) Julia Wallis (bassoon), ManuelaHirsch (horn), Stephan Uhl (conductor); in the cycle Neue Musik in altenResidenzen (New Music in old residencies) of the Council of the MusicThüringen.

After the premiere, Stephan Uhl published an article about the piece:"Juan María Solares 'Ölflecke auf dem Wasser' (2003) fürBläserquintett. Anregungen zur Praxisarbeit zwischen Interpretation undImprovisation" ("Oil spots on the water (2003) by Juan MaríaSolare: Ideas about rehearsal practice between performance and improvisation").This article was published in November 2004 in the book "EnsembleleitungNeue Kammermusik (Dokumentation und Arbeitshilfe des Modellprojekts)",edited by the VdM (Verband deutscher Musikschulen - Associationof German Music Schools), Bonn, ISBN 3-925574-59-X, pages 82-86.

In March 2005 Oil spots on the water was chosen in theshortlist at the Piece of the Year Competition organised by Alan Taylorand the London Chamber Group. In this context it was performed on 10thJuly 2005 at a venue unknown to the composer.
