Ad Wammes, composer
Compositions: On y danse
Raymond Vievermanns (l) and Jan van de Laar(r)

On y danse was composed at the request of the duo of Raymond Vievermanns (1st trumpeter of Het Brabants Orkest) and Jan van de Laar (organist at the St. Lambertuskerk in Helmond) and commissioned by the ‘Fonds voor de Scheppende Toonkunst’.

As in Miroir (composition for organ from 1989) there’s one element which stays the same from beginning till end. In this case there is an ongoing movement of broken chords in
5/8 time( the chords do change though!), which gives the piece an elegant dance character.

The première took place on febrary the 12th 2006 in the Catharinakerk in Doetinchem.
Musicians were Roel Smit-organ and Leo Harmsen-trumpet
