Saudade
Written July 2012 for Jeroen van Veen. ‘Saudade’ is a unique Galician-Portuguese word for which there is no literal translation in English; it describes a deep emotional state of nostalgic longing, and has in turn been described as: a vague and constant desire for something that does not and probably cannot exist; the love that remains; emptiness. The work was premiered by Jeroen on 28 April 2013 in the Beurs van Berlage, Amsterdam.

 

Klarsichtdose Mozartkugeln
Composed in 2008 at the request of Jeroen van Veen. The International Student Piano Competition 2008 commissioned the work, which was performed by the participating students.

 

Merry Xmas
A short piece for piano in a rather slow tempo, written in 1997 to celebrate Christmas.

 

Sound *
Sound, also called ‘Music’, for piano, soundtrack and video, is based on an interview with John Cage that took place in the 70s as part of a 1992 documentary about the composer by Miroslav Sebestik. It was composed in July 2012 and is dedicated to the memory of John Cage.
