Description:
It was in 1998 when Jean-Bernard Pommier invited me to come to England to do a few concerts with the Northern Sinfonia of which he was chief conductor at that time. After a concert in New Castle he asked me to compose a piano concerto for him. This was a great honour for me! The title 'Concerto d'un bon esprit' (Concerto for the good mind) reflects more the way I feel about Jean-Bernard as a person and a great artist than will be audible in the music.

Justice (righteousness) refers to relations between individuals. The first two bars in the piano consist of a small thematic motif which will remain as a sort of idée fixe through the whole first part. Around this motif the music is constantly and intensifying. The 6-tuplets in the piano accompanied by percussive music in the orchestra form the first movement's motorical climax. The winding down
of the cadenza followed by a horn/trombone duet leads the first part to a brutal ending.

Santé (health) refers to the condition of body and mind. This movement starts with a pulsating 'A' rising out of the piano chord of the first movement as it dies away. The first half of this part gradually sort of tempts itself into triplets and then 16th notes, the second half starts with the reprise of the piano a semitone higher. Then it comes into a kind of feel of A-major/minor in places, which refers to the long 'A' of the beginning. The piano entrance - after the wind passage - together with tam-tam settles the movement into 4-in-a-bar, which sort of stops the rolling, forward pushing feeling.

Force (power) refers to the strongest spiritual power: humour. Contrary to the straightness and austerity of the previous parts, this movement is composed with swing and humour. With the opening I like to say: "Come let's have fun!" As soon as this feeling is settled the woodwinds followed by the strings play a choral-like music, after that the party has to go on. - MARIJN SIMONS
