Notes

  • Program notes: 

    Rebirth for ensemble means a definitive affirmation
    of the gradual transformation of my compositional poetics already
    anticipated by my preceding pieces.While in the past I focused
    mainly on elimination and concentration of expression, with only
    several exceptions exclusively conceived as shorter timbral tracts,
    at the present I strive for dynamic elaboration of the material,
    to fill the space with maximum sound and movement. Doing this,
    the inclination to certain harmonies, timbres or rhythms has not
    been lost, but to the contrary, it has developed and has become
    more complex. The composition title expresses my persobal
    liberation from restricting means of expression and for me
    it is a real new and affirmed beginning, a new and richer way
    of expressing myself. It is the rebirth of my compositional thinking.
    Rebirth is dedicated to Karel Kryl.
