Description:
Program note (English): There are five fragments which merge into one another. The work opens with a few chords from the wind, triggering an immediate reaction from the saxophone with signal-like figures which are in turn taken over by the orchestra. The result is a lively play between the soloist and orchestra in the course of which the solo instrument begins to dominate more and more. At figure 16 in the score a short intermezzo begins; this leading to a slow middle section. Long notes, melodic fragments are accompanied by chords in the solo strings with, as a contrast, rapid figures in the woodwind. Following the piccolo solo, this all comes to an end. Thereafter a climax is reached in a high tempo, the orchestra then stopping suddenly and the members carefully following the evolutions of the soloist.
Developing all the previous material and already anticipating the coda, this virtuoso cadenza ends in a short section featuring the saxophonist with a string quartet. In the coda varied ostinati in the percussion and piano are supported by a long series of homophonous chords in the wind and the strings. Short recitatives by the soloist alternate with these. After having reached the climax, this strange structure collapses uncannily quickly; a few further shreds, distant horn sounds: the end. - TRISTAN KEURIS
