Small Pieces?

"I must admit that I was a little surprised when Diet and Servaas, my dear colleagues at Amsterdam Sinfonietta asked me if I'd like to compose a piece of music for them. A little surprised, but also immediately enthousiastic about the idea!

To clarify: I'm a cellist. That being said, I'm also someone who on tour buses gladly spends his time working on music theory exercises or reading perplexing books, and who - if you're not alert enough - is more than happy to begin in a vague and rather complicated manner about his father who wanted to be a composer,

or about that very interesting book of Carlo Rovelli where one can read how events do not happen in time, but rather how time comes to exist as a result of the interaction of events,

or about that theory of art by an aesthete from the time of Béla Bartók, according to which theory an artwork should develop, out of the simplest of seeds, the most contrasting, conflicting characters; the conflicts of which characters should create a form; in which form the characters should come to peace with each other,

and which happens to be the theory that - along with the song of some imaginary birds - I choose as the starting point for my composition 'Kis Darab Hegedűre és Nagybőgőre', that is, for my Small Piece for Violin and Double bass."
