Description:
Program note (English): 'Goldrush' and 'Goldrush Concerto' form a diptych, and can be performed integrally, as both the pieces use more or less the same percussion set-up. The music in both compositions is about goldrush, which led to so many catastrophies in the history of man.'Goldrush' ends where 'Goldrush Concerto' begins: with the discovery of gold. But this 'el dorado' is of course soon to be ransacked, leading to new desperate expeditions for more gold. Gold is also to be understood here as a metaphore for 'happiness' or 'bliss'. The concerto contains sound samples taken from movies like 'Treasure of the Sierra Madre'. In this film, one gold digger (Humphrey Bogart) is killed, while his mates lose the treasure when the wind blows all their gold dust away, back to where it came from. - JACOB TER VELDHUIS
