Six Thinking Hats for 3 violoncelli  (inthe first position)

The title of these six pieces for cello trio refers to the theory of theSix Thinking Hats by Edward de Bono.This is a tool that provides a means for groups to think (plan and decide)together more effectively - or at least in a cohesive way.

Six distinct states areidentified and assigned a hat color:

* Information(white hat): considering exclusively what information is available, what thefacts are.

* Emotions(red hat): instinctive gut reaction or statements of emotional feeling (but notwithout any justification)

* Badpoints judgment (black hat): logic applied to identifying flaws orbarriers, seeking mismatch (the "cons" of an issue).

* Goodpoints judgment (yellow hat): logic applied to identifying benefits,seeking harmony (the "pros").

* Creativity(green hat): statements of provocation and investigation, seeing where athought goes.

* Thinking(blue hat) - thinking about thinking, a control instance.

In my Trio, these color hats are assigned to different characters or moods.For instance the "red hat" is the most emotional last piece, veryrhythmical. Or the black hat corresponds to a reflexive, "rational"piece which is not pessimistic but rather extreme reflexive, pondering. Or theblue hat, which should reflect the "thinking about thinking" and istherefore a canon.

Technically speaking, all pieces are written for cello in the firstposition (sometimes extended or stretched), which makes them quite suitable foryoung cellists or adult beginners.

The total duration of the work is about 12 minutes. The durations of thesingle pieces are:

  I = Enfática insistencia (white hat)           [1'00]

 II = Milonga serena (yellow hat)               [1'45]

III = Estado de alerta (greenhat)               [1'45]

 IV = Canon arcaizante (blue hat)               [4'00]

 V = Coral en quintas (black hat)               [1'00]

 VI = Finale arrabbiato (red hat)               [2'30]

All these pieces can be performed individually.

These six pieces for three cellists were composed in Bremen (and Worpswede)between 20th and 29th February 2012. They are dedicated to Juliane Dehning (who also kindly made essential suggestions aboutthe bowings). International Standard Musical Work Code (ISWC): T-803.196.242-3
