Cities change the Songs of Birds

Composed by request of Lavinia Meijer in 2008 with financial support from the FPA. The premiere at the World Harp Congress in 2008 caused a scandal. The harpist and the composer were accused of ‘musical terrorism’. This music can also be performed on piano. Jan Willem Looze and JacobTV added a concert video.
