    While the title of the piece is playfull  allusion to my 2009 symphonic opus Postludium.Ice, composed for Latvian National symphony orchestra and Karel Mark Chichon, and also twice performed in Germany by Radio symhpny orchestra Saarbruecken and Berlin radio symphony orchestra, the two works have actually nothing in common content-wise – except perharps the fact that both are pantheistic landscapes without words, unmarked by human presence. Prelude.Light, a symphonic miniature, it is a sunrise landscape – far from civilisation, an early morning expectation of the first gleam of light somewhere above the horizon, enjoying the experience of seeing the sky filled with the power, warmth and energy of life of the first rays of sunlight which transform the mysticism of the night into the reality of the daylight hours. Too much Romantic approach for complex conteptualism of contemporary music you would say? But why not?  As a musical genre, prelude is an introduction to something else. While (I would not like to) reveal too much, on this occasion my prelude could quite possibly also turn to be the beginning of the larger musical cycle...
