Since a few years already, I have been working on the piece ‘Aline et la corps sans tete’ (work nº 49) and I will keep doing so in the coming years.
This piece, ’18 proeven met kleine tertsen’ served as a draft for ‘Aline…’.
Petulant groups of material gather around minor thirds – including the little song ‘Anders terug’ – which can also be played individually.
It’s a first, hesitant encounter with the old blind cat, the red mouth, the bells of Vielsalm and in particular, the minor third.
