A Waltz for Wim

A Waltz for Wim (2018)
written for Piet van der Steen (organ) and Peter van Dinther (trumpet)
commissioned by Stichting Orgelprojecten Nederland in Utrecht
first performance: 30-11-2018, St-Gertrudis Cathedral. Utrecht

A Waltz for Wim is a homage to the composer Wim de Ruiter, who died in 2017.
A new orientation on tonality lies at the bottom of it.
The slowly derailing waltz at the end of the piece is a special salute to Wim de Ruiter . He himself wrote many of them. He called them ‘antidotes against bragging’.
