NOSTALGIA

for 7 musicians



This work is based on NOSTALGIA for 7 Middle East instruments, composed for the Atlas Ensemble in 2010.

Wim Henderickx's fascination for non-Western cultures led him to the Middle East. The title of the work refers to personal experiences of the composer with music from this region, as for him it often evokes a feeling of melancholia.

This version for flute, oboe, clarinet, violin, viola, cello and piano was commissioned by the Zvezdoliki Ensemble to perform several times on the occasion of Wim Henderickx's 50th birthday.

There are 7 sections in which all instruments are alternating protagonists.
