Description:
Program note (English): Windows presents different musical cultures, and consists of three connected parts, each subdivided into three sections. In the first part the musical cultures of India, China and Tibet are presented; in the second part the 'cosmic' ('cosmic chord'), birdsongs and the sounds of barking seals may be heard. The last part features the musical cultures of Africa, Bali and the ringing of European church bells. Although these musical worlds seem different from each other, they are all connected by a polyrhythmical structure; for instance, the cyclic drum patterns of India, Africa and Bali and the shifting pattern of European church bells. The first percussionist has a special role in this composition because of the fact that he/she plays musical cues on percussion instruments. In this way the windows of the different musical worlds are audibly opened and closed. The percussion part can also be played by the conductor. - JAN ROKUS VAN ROOSENDAEL
