Programme Note:

Paul Dolden

L’ivresse de la vitesse, 1992-93

Commissioned by:

“The title (Intoxication by Speed) is an allusion towards the artistic intentions of the composer which involve the speeding up of an excess of musical ideas so that the composition and its materials exhaust themselves in the shortest time possible. This overall compositional language is intented to make the different musical styles and compositional systems implode, creating new identities beyond their worn-out historical reference points, and to produce something similar to seduction: undeniably attractive and yet simultaneously unexplainable.”

Premiere Information:
May 28 , 1994, Conway Hall, London, Eng.
