Program note

At the time I was composing the work WIDE I was interested in making my picture of the musical world wider. I wanted to challenge the borderlines of my personal comprehension of a musical form by incorporating into the same work materials that are foreign to each other. The work thus exploits different kinds of materials and style situations. I was fascinated by the idea of always finding new areas of musical discovery. I let my mind be free to invent and bring forth ideas that even seemed to be daring. On a more detailed level I tried to create a richly progressing, lively, musical music.
