Annette Kruisbrink: Pièces de l'Ouest
Pièces de l'Ouest
Annette Kruisbrink (1958 - … )
A suite for guitar. Fast movements are alternated by slower ones. A sort of rediscovering of Western countries. Particularly North-America, with its big cities and extensive landscapes.
The first and third movement , La Cité (The City) and Midi (Noon), represent the hectic city-life with all its traffic, hubbub and hurried people. The second and fourth movement, En Amont (Upwards) and En Aval (Downwards), radiate the serenity of the immense mountains and beautiful nature. The fifth and last movement, Nez Percé (Pierced Nose), brings us back to the origin of North-America. The Nez Percés (they call themselvesTsutpeli) is the name of an Indian tribe.
