Description:
Program note (English): [Premiere: May 5, 2006 - Witten, Germany - Peppie Wiersma, Asko Ensemble cond. Hans Leenders (Wittener Tage für neue Kammermusik)] - As the composer Edgar Varèse stated already in 1930: "Notre temps est percutant" (our time is percussive). For a composer who grew up in the fiftees and sixtees of the last century, my childhood was indeed extremely percussive: The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Frank Zappa with his Mothers of Invention, later on Varèse, Xenakis... In 'Self-portrait with percussion' I deal with percussion in many of its manifestations in my life. - KLAS TORSENSSON
