Description:
Program note (English): Nagras (according to the Dutch dictionary Van Dale: hay or grass that still stands after mowing) is a rudimentary attempt, often borrowed from the 19th century (like the funeral bell and the monumental unisons), arranged in such a way that a tight, binding and obsessing plea arises. The naked context and the extremely basic harmony make it possible that small changes bring about a strong impact. The piece is constructed in three phases, in which the last has a relaxing (uitsmijter = final number) function. - PAUL TERMOS
