Description:
Program note (English): 'Disco' is a poorly rotating disc. The musical subject of the piece is the invention of the quadruple metre, of the key of G major, of a violin-piano duet. Like Ravel's 'Tzigane', Disco refers to a musical dance genre. But times have changed. Nothing goes smoothly any more. - LOUIS ANDRIESSEN
