My Aquarius cycle is inspired by the genius of Karel Goeyvaerts, who wrote Mon doux pilote s’endort aussi as a framework between which other compositions could be performed.
Year of Composition
Alpha Aquarii (3’), Beta Aquarii (4’)
Part of Cycle
Alpha Aquarii can be performed as an introduction to Mon doux pilote s’endort aussi by Karel Goeyvaerts, Beta Aquarii as intermezzo between measure 13 and 14. Other intermezzos include Game (Gamma Aquarii) for clarinet and King Goeyvaerts! for mixed choir and vocal quartet. The intermezzos for clarinet can also be performed separately.
