EXPIRED - miniature for orchestra (2019)
Program note:
EXPIRED is a first step towards a personal research in the relevance of tradition and traditional forms in our contemporary, musical climate.The piece itself can be seen as an abstract miniature which functions as a dialogue between Beethoven’s infamous ninth symphony and the personal questions I dealt with about writing an orchestra piece in 2018
EXPIRED was written for the Symphonic orchestra of Flanders (Symfonieorkest Vlaanderen) as part of their SOV Composer’s academy 2018.
