Description:
Program note (English): Bachanalia (with one 'c'!) was written at the request of the ZaterdagMatinee, a concert series at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam under the artistic direction of the Dutch Radio Broadcasting organisation NPS. The brief of the commission was to write a work of roughly 12 minutes for the Maarschalkerweerd organ at the Concertgebouw and to include an association with Bach for the work to be incorporated in a Bach revival context. As it turns out - just after completion of the score - Bachanalia is programmed as the prelude to Bach's Magnificat. As I was not content with just any allusion to J.S. Bach, whose music has been of such importance in my musical development, both as a performer and a composer, I set about trying to create a veritable celebration of it. This is easier said dan done, given that a considerable amount of water has gone under the bridge between this time and mine. To incorporate Bach's music, style or language into my own idiom (or vice versa) and make sure the
result not only sounds a convincing blend but shows consistency of purpose, proved much more challenging than I anticipated. What I achieved in the end may be described as 'stretching.' Bach's language by dragging my various references across their natural boundaries into outskirts of my own territory (...). - JAN VRIEND
