The Crossroads Dance in Connacht (2005)
for violin and piano.
It's the second time that I was inspired by a painting. This time is was Charles Lamb's painting The crossroads dance in Connacht. The way Irish peasants are depicted, showing much expression and movement, a number of watching people and a violinist, these features inspired me to write this piece.
Written for Tjeerd Top (violin) and Mariken Zandvliet (piano)
They premiered it on November 12, 2005 in "de Muziekkamer" in Zaandam. (The Netherlands)
duration: approx. 7' 30"
