Description:
Program note (English): (Premiere: 23-3-1994 - Lincoln Center, New York - New York Virtuoso Singers, cond. Harold Rosenbaum). The multilingual text written by Fleur Bourgonje gave me the idea to write the composition in two different tempi that sound simultaneously: the male voices sing fast the narrative Spanish texts and the female voices always sing slow, like the invocations from Flora Tristan to her daughter. To the end of the piece, after the assault in the text, all the voices come together in the same rhythm. - LOUIS ANDRIESSEN
