Program note (English): (Première: 18-12-1992 - Prinsekerk, Rotterdam - Ensemble of the Rotterdams Conservatorium, Arie van Beek, conducting) - The composition Estampie is based on four dance melodies from the 13th and 14th centuries, the so-called estampies. The structure of these melodies - both instrumentally and vocally - can be characterised by among other things a repetitive principle which results in estampies radiating in a motorised way. This motorising phenomena as well as the enormous vitality of medieval monophony formed the main departure point for joining these four dances. The earlier mentioned reoccurring principles are especially found in the percussion parts and the parts which link the dances with each other. Also because of my usage of polyphony, a certain medieval form of polyphony and the parallel organum, where the melody in equal intervals is followed by one or more voices comes forward. There where polyphony and homophony make their entrance in a 'later period', has to
do with the way in which these estampies are composed and the need to break through the reoccurrences, as stated above, and parallelism. - BERNARD VAN BEURDEN
