Description:
Program note (English): The basic material for "Intervals II" is, as far as the organization of pitch is concerned, formed by definite intervals. Unlike "Intervals I" , in which the several parts are characterized by different intervals, in "Intervals II" two basic nuclei formed the starting point for the whole work: a minor and a major second. These two intervals, which for that matter also occur separately, are combined into larger unities. With regard to rhythm, the nucleus short-long plays an important role throughout the work, side by side with the freer rhythmical structures and rhythm derived from the English word accent. This item (short-long) is immediately introduced by the choir in the opening of part I. The degree of complexity of the music is gradually increased in the course of part I, II and III. In the final part of III, elements from the endings of the first two parts are combined, by which in a sense the first three parts end as one unity. The fourth part is meant as a real
'Schlusschor' as they are found traditionally in Bachs cantatas, among others. - JOEP STRAESSER
