Description:
Program note (English): The work consists of two parts. Its title refers to a style of composition that originated in the 15th century, in which certain parallel harmonies are used to accompany a melodic line. This principle partly determines the texture of the present work, of course translated into terms of contemporary music. The second half of the title: "bourdon", also refers to an age-old practice of having one or more tones sounding continuously in the background. - TON DE LEEUW
