Erde, Wasser, Luft (Earth, water, sky)

In September and October 1998 I started working on this classical composition, which was based on a group of 9 paintings by 3 German artists: Helge Hommes, Christian von Grumbkow and Sebastiaan Spit 'Erde, Wasser, Luft'. The music is written for three groups of three instruments, the first group excisting of: violin, flute and clarinet, to symbolise the sky part, the second group is symbolising the water and is played by: trumpet, vibes and tenor saxophone, and the third group is symbolising the earth and you hear: bassoon, French horn and cello. Each group has its own melody-lines and the composition should consist of three parts. It is a more or less minimalistic composition, but after completing the first part, I stopped with it. I don't know if it will ever be completed. If there ever will be a complete composition with this title, it might be a complete new one.
