Notes

  • Program notes: 

    The composition was inspired by nine Beatitudes from the Holy Scripture. They were pronounced at the beginning of the Sermon on the Mount. The blessings refer to the harmonious, fulfilling, and significant human existence and are very relevant nowadays as people are lacking a life of sense, love and peace. I was trying to create an orchestral sound immersing into the sacral mode. I was trying to create a prayer, meditation, or inner listening and contemplation seeking for the harmony with myself and the surrounding world.
