Description:
Program note (English): The Registers are written in spatial notation: the lengths of notes and rests are determined by the lengths of the staves on the paper. One centimetre corresponds with one second at the most. The pitch is indicated approximately. The pianist is free in choosing the notes, but he will respect the indicated pitch. Registers is more of an 'indication to action' than a composition. It would be in conflict with the nature of the piece to 'translate' it into normal notation, except for study purposes. The used notation is meant to stimulate the performer to impulsive activity which can have a clearly emotional, passionate character. It is possible to play more notes than are written. The piece can also be played more quickly than indicated. The notation should not curb the player; indeed, it should encourage pianistic action. - LOUIS ANDRIESSEN
