The Kiss


string quartet a version for small string ensemble will follow soon

ca. 3'

For Coosje Wijzenbeek, from Mascha & Willem Wander van Nieuwkerk


Information about the premiere will follow soon.

At the Fancy Fiddlers summercourse in Ftan, July 2006, Mascha parted company, after many years, with this inspiring group of young string players. We then offered Coosje this little piece.

From the little preface:

…at the conclusion, when bride and groom have kissed, the groom breaks a glass with his right foot. A moment of great joy thus marries the symbol of a heart breaking over lost memories…the guests then start their festive cheering.
