Programme notes

Original: Sonata od sna

 

Dream Music is written on the lyrics of a three-part poem by Enes Kišević entitled Sonata od sna. My associations also led to Beethoven's Sonata quasi una fantasia. The initial bars taken from the Sonata are not just a quote, more of a motto and guideline. These excerpts introduce the atmosphere of the piece and point to its structural and musical elements … The other association goes towards hyperrealist images and pop art, all the way to Andy Warhol. (I.K. 1993)
