Description

Work note by the composer:
"Open Mind is an introductory piece, an overture for orchestra. The title refers to the fact that the work is meant to be a short opening piece in a concert programme but also to an openness in the composers free choice of expression with an open mind to musical ideas, gestures and stiles, and with a strong wish to communicate. Harmonic structures, melodic lines and ideas of a colourful instrumentation are fundamental to the composing of Open Mind. A nine tone scale forms the musical basis of the piece but is still contrasting with form parts that are more freely treated with regard to musical material."
