Description:
Program note (English): The writer Vestdijk was the first in the Netherlands who discovered Emily Dickinson's poetry. Throughout her life she wrote about her world at home and in the garden, which she never left. Choreographer and dancer Martha Graham frequently used the poetry of Emily Dickinson in her work. So I can recall a ballet from 1940 "Letter to the world", in which one dancer ran forward as he shouted: "Dear March come in". This made such an impression on me at the time that I then made a plan for a choral piece with several poems by Emily Dickinson. The result is this work from 2002, in which I have used seven of her poems. - ROBERT HEPPENER
