COMMENTS ON PIECE

Transcend and transform is a Piano concerto for soloist and sinfonietta. Its based on the Norwegian Piece Researcher Johan Galtungs book "Transcend and transform". The idea of conflict resolution is based on the thoughts that all conflicts has the same mechanisms and stages, wether its between a married couple or between states. The outcome is organized in 5 steps:

1) "A" wins, 2) "B" wins) 3) "confllict/problem is postponed"- no one wins 4)"Compromise"- Both looses but can live with it as long as the other part also looses 5)"Fifth solution"- Suddenly a new reality and unthough ideas opens up leading to a solution that gives both what they want
