for windband / brass band or fanfare

SKRIET was originally composed for ORCHESTRA in 1993 in commission of KUL (Catholic University, Louvain). In 2010 the composer made a version of this work for windband.
In 2019 he also made versions for brass band and fanfare.

It was inspired on the painting The Scream by the Norwegian expressionist Edvard Munch. The work treats feelings of fear and loneliness of a human being wandering in nature, which cannot offer comfort.

From the diary of Edvard Munch : I was walking along the road with two friends - then the sun sunk - the sky was suddenly bloodred - I stood still, leaned dead tired on the railings - above the blue black fjord and the city there was blood and tongues of fire - my friends walked further on and I stood still trembling of fear - and I felt that there was a huge, endless scream going through nature...
