Christian Jost
Pietà in memoriam Chet Baker: Concerto for trumpet and orchestra
DiesIrae: Concerto for trombone and orchestra
LuxAeterna: Concerto for alto saxophone and orchestra

Each of the three concertos has its own form and structure, independent of the overall form.
Thus, the idea of a requiem consisting of solo concertos developed - a requiem without text,
without a liturgical connection or ritual. The musician acting as soloist is the vehicle for the form and content of this purely instrumental requiem - a requiem in which the individual, the soloist, is given a distinctive, powerful voice in order to allow the maximum identification from the perspective of the individual. The form of the solo concerto symbolizes the primal situation of human existence in a wonderful way, said the composer Christian Jost, the close connection of
the individual with the world around him can be equated with the soloist, who seeks his place in
the world in the sound and tonal fabric of the orchestra revolving around him, constantly striving, with the goal of overcoming the natural loneliness of the human being.
