Program note :
In this work bars and groups of bars occur that must/can/ may be repeated. The repeat procedure creates a margin of freedom in which space becomes available for the musician to decide independently about:
a) The number of repeats
b) Dynamic differentiation
c) Style of play (legato, staccato, etc.)
d) Pedal usage
Please note that the compulsory repeat sections form a minority compared to the continually adapted and non-compulsory repeats (bridge-sections). In this way the possibility arises to make a choice between a version of the composition in which all musical information is highlighted and a version in which all musical information is absorbed in a cadence of ‘acoustic sound fluctuations’ (many repeats).
