This is a big symphonic work in the minimalist style. I tried to compose something following the school of Musical Minimalism as established by the American composers Philip Glass (born 1937), Steven Reich (born 1936), Terry Riley (born 1935), La Monte Young (born 1935) and John Adams (born 1947). Around 1995, I had listened to Different Trains for String Quartet and tape, composed by Steven Reich in 1988. I created a sort of "compressed minimalism", because I thought that with repeating a motif only for four bars would be sufficient, and I tried to compensate for the harmonic and melodic monotony by rhythmical intricacy, as expressed especially by the percussion section in the version for big symphonic orchestra. I have now extended some motifs and added dynamics.
