Max E. Keller
aushalten und bewegen (endure and enduce) (1988)
for accordion
All procedures, with the exception of a few free figures, are derived from the contrast between recumbent sound (endure) and rhythmically structured repetitions of sound (induce). The title also focuses to all intents and purposes on the ‘extramusical’.

Eric Gaudibert
Deux ou trois pas dans le gris (1994)
for double-bass and accordion
The first part of this work gives the double-bass a virtuoso role. The two instruments are now independent as far as their character and the tempo is concerned. In the second part the double-bass and accordion merge in a lyrical and poetic way. This work resulted in two solo versions: 'Deux ou trois pas...' for double-bass and 'Deux pas dans le gris' for accordion.

Max E. Keller
weniger und mehr (1996-2013)
for violoncello, accordion and piano
The title 'weniger and mehr' (less and more) describes a principle that defines individual processes. The work begins with a series of vigorous accordion decresecendi that become ever shorter (LESS in volume and duration) and separated by ever increasing (MORE) intervals. A rhythm, the cells of which appear throughout the whole piece, is formed simultaneously within these sounds: less in sound means more in rhythm. How and to what degree is a dialogue between the instruments possible? - This question is a further aspect expressed in, among other things, the exploration of opposing extremes of register or, contrariwise, unisono, or in attempting to bridge distances.

The percussionist plays both a principal and theatrical role performing on a table. The remaining instruments are, for the most, independent of one another; the piano is placed at the far-end of the scene. The sounds produced on the table are amplified.

Max E. Keller
calmo e furioso (2003-2004)
for clarinet (bass clarinet), accordion and double-bass
The initial point of departure for this composition is the contrast between calm and hectic unfolded in transitions and tempo cuts on nine basic figures which, with time, develop a rich life of their own. The initial impetus provokes processes on other levels - almost like in real life.

Max E. Keller
Wiederkehr und Veränderung (2013)
for soprano saxophone, trombone and accordion
Wiederkehr (repetition) and Veränderung (variation) are archetypes of music, and perhaps even of life itself. A series of four basic structures are repeated four times, whereby the duration each time varies enormously, as does the characteristic of each of the basic models. Two of the four basic structures touch on repetition in their internal anatomy. The third basic structure is puzzle-like in its construction, whereby all three instruments repeat the same six elements several times and overlap. On another level, breathing/blowing - an existential basis of life - also plays an important part in this "wind trio".
