First performance: 15 November 2002 – Badenweiler, Germany
Emanuelle Ophèle, Odile Auboin, Frédérique Cambreling
What good times those were! I was seventeen years old, and Gagarin took off. The world had no outer limits. In 1961, excited by the Big Bang theory, I wrote a piano piece with the title “Kosmos”. It was a glance into the infinity surrounding us. 32 years later, a retrospect, looking inwards, into the personal psyche of those days. A fragment from the orchestral work “Psychokosmos”, adapted for three instruments, has the brief title PSY.
/Peter Eötvös – 1997/
