Introduction: 'Exclamatio for trumpet and organ' explores the 'scream' in a multi-faceted way: the scream is fanfare-like at the beginning, screams for attention, becomes a shout of rage, then a longing scream, an outcry for love, escalating in a cry of combat. In the concluding Adagio part, the established aggressive-sounding motifs are internalised and become a quiet lament or plea. With a relapse into silence, the scream is most effective - the most intensive exclamatio.
