Dream Music for Soli, Piano, Percussion, Synth and Choir
Duration: 25 minutes
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 associations go towards hyperrealist
images and pop art, all the way to Andy Warhol. (I.K. 1993)
The lyrics talk about love and of life, the life that goes by like a dream. In his
instrumentation, Kuljerić is both romantic and postmodern, with a colorful
atmosphere that draws from the conversation between marimba, vibraphone and
piano. Synthesizer and percussion keyboards give a different frame to the famous
bars from Beethoven’s Sonata, in the idea of pop art.
