Licht bei Vermeer (1997-1998)
for eight-part choir (SSAATTBB), basset horn and vibraphone
Texts: Vincent van Gogh, Pieter Teding van Berckhout, Dirk Hannema, Catharina Bolnes, Alltagssprache
Very little is known about the life of Jan Vermeer (1632-1675). There exists nothing but a scattering of contemporary articles and absolutely no personal testimonials with regard to the artist, who rarely left his hometown of Delft. Despite this, and a relatively small oeuvre of approximately 35 paintings known to exist, Jan Vermeer exposed new dimensions in the field of light, perspective and colour, and is regarded as one of the most outstanding painters of his era. Using compositional methods, 'Licht bei Vermeer' attempts to transpose the characteristic light and colour concepts of seven Vermeer paintings onto a musical level. While the basset horn and vibraphone generally represent the only painting depicting a view of Vermeer's hometown (View of Delft, ca. 1660/61), the choir tackles six genre scenes situated within this city: Woman with a Lute [ca. 1659-60], Lady and Gentleman Drinking Wine [undated] The Girl with the Wine Glass [ca. 1659-60], A Lady Standing at a Virginal [ca. 1672-1673], Woman with a Pearl Necklace [ca. 1664] and Woman Holding a Balance [ca. 1664]. Each of these genre scenes is assigned a text fragment, like tesserae in the mosaic of Vermeer-reception, where the musical reference to the picturesque work of Vermeer is coupled with exemplary statements about his life and impact.

Do you know a painter called Vermeer?
Vincent van Gogh to Emile Bernard, 1888

I visited a celebrated artist named Vermeer, I admired several examples of his paintings, the most extraordinary and curious aspect of which consists in the perspective.
Pieter Teding van Berckhout, 1669

The works of van der Meer from Delft are so extraordinary that we cannot refrain from pointing them out.
Auction catalogue, Paris, 1836

Aside from Rembrandt, Vermeer towers above all other notable artists of his era.
Dirk Hannema, 1935

During the long and devastating war, Vermeer was incapable of selling any of his paintings.
Catharina Bolnes, 1675

As a result, and together with the heavy burden of his children, he deteriorated with such rapidity that from a healthy state death had claimed him within just one and a half days.
Catharina Bolnes, 1675

Balz Trümpy
Die Elemente (2008)
for vocal ensemble (2.2.2.2) and instruments (1.1.2.0/2.0.2.0/2perc/2.2.2.2.0)
Texts: Eduard Mörike
The music of my piece 'Die Elemente' refers in a simple and immediately understandable way to the text in the poem of the same name by Eduard Mörike. This poem impressed me with its combination of raging elemental force and naive tenderness. Despite the biblical citation that Mörike adds as a motto, I find the essence of his poem more archaic-antique, like a Greek or Germanic myth.

Robert Walser Trilogie I,2: Tobold (1987-1988)
Scenes of humility
for choir voices and orchestral groups
A cycle based on savage and partly lost writings; "Die schöne Frau von Thun" uses six instruments, which can be relatively freely chosen; "Tobold" is a compositional concept, formal and extremely variable in its instrumentation (the composer has arranged one version); "Das Mädchen mit den schönen Augen" is the last work before the composer's non-composing phase, maliciously simple, supposedly humorous - it is dedicated to the performer Marion Leyh.

Veni, veni, gaudium (1991)
for two - eight-part mixed choir
Texts: Bibel / Liturgie
This composition is based on the eternal and primordial concern with the Pentecostal Litany. A twelfth century melody together with poetry by Stephan Langton (also around 1200 AD) acts as a cantus firmus. The rhythm, declamation, voicing, orchestration, phrasing and expression of the piece is highly distinguished from the litany of the middle ages, from which the title has borrowed the first and last word.
