This work was commissioned by “Limburgse Werkgevers Vereniging” (NL) as a tribute to their retiring president Mr. Wim Weijnen, and is freely inspired by the first sentence of the Hebrew Slave Choir from „Nabucco“ by Giuseppe Verdi:
„Va, Pensiero, sull’ali dorate, va, ti posa sui clivi, sui colli“
„Go, thought, on wings of gold, go settle upon the slopes and the hills“
Demo Score: → Il Pensiero dell’Arte
Demo Recording: (Live recording during world first performance, performed by the wonderful violist Lei Wang, (concertmaster of the Philharmonie Zuid-Nederland) and Koninklijke Harmonie Sainte Cécile Eijsden conducted by Jan Cober)
