For the Silence Wants to be Heard

Highlighted work

The Crack

Let your fragility be heard

Vulnerability, forgiveness, regained contact: these are the building blocks for “The Crack,” a composition commissioned by the Dominican Monastery Zwolle and written for a small, delicate chamber music ensemble (flute, viola, cello and harp). It’s a meditation about our human existence: we make mistakes almost inevitably (part 1), the pain is hardly bearable (part 2), we free ourselves with a confession (part 3) and set off again – with scars (part 4).
