Notes de programme :
Milan Kundera: “In the sunset of dissolution, everything is illuminated by the aura of nostalgia.” (From The Unbearable Lightness of Being, 1984.) “You can suffer nostalgia in the presence of the beloved if you glimpse a future where the beloved is no more.” (From Ignorance, 1998.) My starting point for this piece was the Adagio of Bach’s Sonata for Viola da Gamba and Harpsichord, BWV 1027, a piece which for me is replete with nostalgia and past associations. The opening melody has a sweet sadness that I find irresistible. While I used some fragments of the Bach for my own musical purposes throughout Nostalgia, the referencing is only audible in the coda. Rather than building a piece on Bach’s music, my intent was to refer to the many emotions I feel when listening to the Adagio, to create a rumination upon this seductive but surreal world of memory.Aside from the undoubted delights of glimpsing the past through a sentimental haze, nostalgia also has some darker facets; engaging in an obsessive love for the past makes it easy to lose sight of the present, and nothing appears quite as wonderful as that which is forever lost.Note: This is the revised (2012) version of a piece originally written in 2007. You may contact the composer at if you wish to hear a recording of the piece - recordings are not publicly available.
