Description:
Program note (English): Conductor Jurjen Hempel asked me to write a composition for the opening of the concert. I interpreted the word Opening in two different ways. First as Jurjen meant it, as a beginning of something, as an overture. But Opening also means something that is not closed, something open, something ajar. This idea of music with a chink (Kier is the Dutch word) had a lot of influence on the form and the instrumentation of the piece. That's why you will hear a few windy holes in this overture. When all goes well, the fifty-seven score pages of Kier take only nine minutes to play. Nine minutes for a youth orchestra; an overture in which all orchestral divisions have their part and do what young musicians do so well: play fast! The structure of the music is a chain of up and down moving curves, whirling speedily through the whole orchestra. At first in clear, simple movements, later as dense constellations of curves together and echos of various instrumental groups. The only contrasts with
this orchestral whirling are the incidental breakouts of some instruments and the moments where the musicians come together again in large chords. - MARTIJN PADDING
