Programme Note

Commissioned by the Ebony Band, Amsterdam
World Premiere: December 18, 1994

Equilibrium equals harmony, sensuality, and spirituality.
No dominant subject.
Everything assumes the same value.
In life too the main thing is to achieve equilibrium.
Searching – no longer imitation but creation.
Beyond all happiness and misery there is equilibrium.
The reciprocal action op opposites,
The union of opposites,
The equivalence of opposites.
Art has to be forgotten, beauty must be realized.
