Press Quotes

"...at the centre of De Tijd stands Augustine's fundamental question, 'What, then, is time". And so, transferred onto the musical plane, the work manipulates our perception of musical time by means of its structural organization and technical detail, and engages us by the poetry that these generate. ...throughout De Tijd is the sound of bells, imbuing its ritual progress with a sense of the numinous."
