Ringelspiel (Austrian-German for merry-go-round, which is similar to Ringišpil in Sokolovic’s native Serbian) is laid out in five short, connected sections. To most of us, a merry-go-round brings back memories of childhood and conjures up emotional responses of nostalgia and naïveté. So too does it for this composer. In addition, Sokolovic has derived inspiration from the mechanical aspects of a merry-go-round — its simplicity of movement, its circular motion, and its status as an icon of the machine age.
