Program Notes

This little suite based on alsacien folk tunes was written in March 2015, to be choreographed by a young students’ dance company, willing to revisit the good old traditional alsacien's dance style, with a new approach. Therefore, six very well known tunes, such as Reihe reihe Rose, D’kett, D’Waschfraue, Es trajt e schwarzbrunn maidele, Herr Schmidt, and the famous D’r Hans im Schnockeloch come into play, with their contrasting caracters and moods.

Mixed in a rather free way, and crafted in a traditional ABA form, the different tunes are presented one after another. We hear sometimes only the very first motif, and some others,  the complete melody with a short development. All tunes come together at the work’s end for a brilliant conclusion.

Destined to be played by a young band, this six minutes long suite works wonderful as concert closer or an encore. The music is overall lighthearted and fresh, and should be approached in the same manner.
