NOSTALGIA

for flute, clarinet, marimba and string orchestra



This work is based on NOSTALGIA for 7 Middle East instruments, composed for the Atlas Ensemble in 2010.
In 2011 Wim Henderickx made a version for 7 WESTERN INSTRUMENTS and in 2017 this version for string orchestra, commissioned by the Boho Strings.

Wim Henderickx's fascination for non-Western cultures led him to the Middle East. The title of the work refers to personal experiences of the composer with music from this region, as for him it often evokes a feeling of melancholia.

There are 7 sections in which all instruments are alternating protagonists.
