World Minimal Music Festival


Court music from Korea

Apr 4 2013

De Tijd (1981) opens with a mighty crash. The remainder of the work, lasting over forty minutes, could be viewed as the reverberation of this thunderclap – as if time had temporarily been brought to a standstill. Louis Andriessen was originally inspired to compose this work as a result of a mystical experience: ‘(…) the feeling of a moment that lasted an eternity. It was more than consummate tranquillity, it was a euphoric state of such intensity that I later decided to compose a piece about it.’ Prior to the interval, Korean court music provides a fitting counterpoint. This music is likewise all about serenity, abstraction and minimalism.
