Description:
Program note (English): When you travel by train through Holland, a small densely populated country, you will see that literally every square meter is brought to use: rectangular pieces of land divided by straight ditches, canals and dykes, long rows of trees and narrow parcels of green, expanding concrete districts and industrial parks, towns and villages. The composition process resembles the process of bringing wasteland under cultivation. In 'Views from a Dutch train', repetition and variation of simple musical material passes by like the Dutch landscape from a train. Both accordions describe the panorama of the streamlined Dutch landscape from the left and right train windows. - JACOB TER VELDHUIS
