Het ruimteschip is het beste dingetje

CR: 57
Year: 2009
Duration: 5'
Instrumentation: Violin & Piano

Maxime Gulikers (violin) & Thom Janssen (piano)

Het ruimteschip is het beste dingetje was written on request of the Iordens Viooldagen 2010 as a compulsory work for the violin competition in the age category of 13-15 years old. Writing the piece posed an interesting challenge for me as I wasn't a violinist and the piece had to be playable by students from this age.

As a matter of fact, the piece actually consists of two pieces that each take turns in offering themselves fragmentarily to the listener, each one developing individually, but also commenting on each other. When over time these two developments have come closer together, the piece culminates in a cadenza for violin solo.
