Description:
Program note (English): The Mosaics for orchestra were written in the spring of 1959. The title refers to the name of the musical set-up: a composition in which small, melodic, harmonic, rythmic and timbre-sounds function as independent data are freely associated against each other, analogously as in the way in which a mosaic is composed from colorful tiles. The usage of changing tonal patterns are created from a limited number of intervals. In this way there is a harmonic, rythmic and three melodic patterns. Additionally specific recurring dynamics play a role. The colors in the orchestra are extended with bells, vibraphone, xylophone, marimbaphone, several types of cymbals and drums, harp, celesta and piano. The form is a one movement piece (Lento) which flows into a second movement (Allegretto grazioso). The first part has been structured so that at the peak all data are heard simultaneously. The second part is an alternation between soli and tutti (7-movements), which can be compared to the
concerto grosso form with the idea that all solistic instruments take part alternatively. Mosaics represented the Netherlands during the ISCM festival in 1960. - PETER SCHAT
