Description:
Program note (English): The Tallahatchie Concerto is the first piece that I wrote after the oratorio Paradiso, my 'magnus opus' so far. This is the reason why 'pink shadows of heavenly orange clouds' hang over the opening adagietto of the piece. The Tallahatchie Concerto is in fact a streched out crescendo/accelerando, in which the saxophone gradually leads us from celestial atmospheres into terrestrial ones. I regard this Concerto as an abstract piece of music, which is quite exceptional in my work, because I love to connect an anecdote to each composition. All I can say about the piece is that the word 'tallahatchie' occured to me spontanuosly. It appeared to be a native-American word, meaning 'river of rocks', which is in my opinion an apt metaphor for this concerto. I also think that there is some similarity with pieces such as 'Les Soupirs de Rameau', the 'Goldrush Concerto' or my third string quartet 'There must be some way out of here'. All these works are 'dreamed expeditions', composed
voyages of discovery for moments of beauty, bliss and ecstasy. - JACOB TER VELDHUIS
