Program note (English): [Première: 11-12-1992 - Vredenburg, Utrecht - Ian Partridge, tenor with the Radio Chamber Orchestra, David Porcelijn, conducting] - The texts of the song cycle Chamber Music have been taken from a collection of poetry by James Joyce which was published in 1907. Joyce, who received a musical education in Paris for concert singer, published his own texts. The sleeve of the publication by Jonathan Cape mention among others this: Elusive and formal, these poems are, above all, musical. Joyce, who trained as a singer in Paris, set of to write of lyrics that could be sung, and their imagery - characteristically - appeals chiefly to the ear. Echoes from books, together with images from musical instruments, contribute to Joyce's "elegant and antique phrase". His models are the Elizabethan lyricists, the airs of Dowland and the words of Shakespeare. I have selected eight of the 36 poems for this cycle. - HANS HENKEMANS
