Vol van genade

Jan 13 2011

‘My works are not too long, most of them are actually too short. They become part of the landscape of time. Would you say that the Odyssey is too short?’ These are the words of Morton Feldman. Composed in 1971,Rothko Chapel for vocal soloists, choir and ensemble is a key work in the oeuvre of the American grand master of silence. In contrast to his later works Rothko Chapel is still of normal concert length, however, the gradually fading colours soon cause one to lose all sense of time. Choir and ensemble also perform a new work by a composer of the grand, expressive gesture: Hanna Kulenty. Sinds the eighties, when she began studying composition with Louis Andriessen, she has been part of two cultures as a composer, Dutch and Polish. In Decimo forte Kulenty creates a new sound for an old prayer to the Virgin Mary. The French composer Brice Pauset (1965) transcribed the famous piano cycle by Robert Schumann.
