Program note (English): Hallelujah II is part of the fulfillment of the promise I set myself in 1965/67 with a composition called Transformation I - On the way to Hallelujah. It stands in line with Hallelujah I for large symphony orchestra and solo bass- /contrabass clarinet.
My parents brought me up with a positive outlook on life. I have always felt that it was the composer's duty to keep reminding us of the positive aspects of life, rather than to indulge in negative laments. This is not an easy task as news about the world and the ways people choose to misbehave in it increases anxiety about the future of mankind and its natural habitat. Apart from the millions who suffer needlessly at present, what suffering is in store for our children? While the leaders of the world keep trying to make us believe that salvation is in their good hands if only we danced to their monotonous tunes that set the tone for legitimized crime. I as an artist, feel rather more inclined to scream against barbarism than to sing about the beauty of life - insofar there is any left.
Yet, I felt I owed it to life and to my parents (to whom I dedicated this work) to open up a flower rather than a manifesto. A flower that I grew myself in the earth that I am myself. It will undoubtedly show the deficiencies of the soil it drew its nutrition from, but it will hopefully also demonstrate the positive and indestructible energy that I still carry around from the first seconds of creation. - JAN VRIEND
