Description:
Orchestral piece which was performed several times in the Netherlands and Russia (Saint Petersburg) by the Dutch Student Orchestra. It starts like a sort of Mahlerian funeral music with church bells and a plaintive melody in the strings but then develops into a more energetic kind of music, eventually bringing the listener to a funfair, albeit a funfair as one would experience in a dream or trip.
