Exercises in Indulgence


Fabian Svensson


Piccolo, clarinet, melodica, trombone, violin, electric bass

Years of composition:

2016, revised in 2018



Program note:

Like so much music from throughout history, Exercises in Indulgence is constructed around the forced marriage of two contrasting musical ideas—in this case, these ideas being a fast and angular, slightly bebop-flavoured lick, and an unapologetically cheesy melody.
