Fratres was initially composed as three-part music without fixed instrumentation that can be performed with various instruments. This is possible using the basic principle of the tintinnabuli technique, where the musical material does not necessarily have to be tied to the timbre of a specific instrument.

Structurally, Fratres consists of a set of variations separated by recurring percussion motifs in the case of instrument settings without percussion, the drum-like sound is imitated.


Throughout the composition we can hear a recurrent theme that starts fratees time in a different octave. We can clearly recognise three voices: These are accompanied throughout the entire composition by a resounding low drone of fifth.

Fratres also exists as three-part music with added variations for the solo instrument.

The first among these was written for violin and piano and was commissioned by the Salzburger Festspiele festival. It was premiered in at the festival, performed by Gidon and Elena Kremer.
