Program Notes

Time for Outrage! is to be seen as an expression of my personal aversion against all the current crises and injustice of any kind in the world. I am aware that I cannot alleviate or even eradicate these crises with my music, but as a free citizen I believe I have the right to express my indignation through music.

As in Meltdown (1992, a protest against the nuclear power), in Time for Outrage! I try to cover up my weakness in this hopeless struggle with a pinch of sarcasm. Thus, the perpetrators in the 3rd part (Rock the Culprits!) are not punished, but ‘rocked’ ...

This work received its premiere performance 26 March 2015 by the Luxembourg Military Band, Cpt. Jean-Claude Braun, conductor.

- Program Note by World Association of Symphonic Bands and Ensembles (WASBE)

Time for Outrage! was commissioned by the Luxembourg “Friends of Military Music” in 2014. The title is the free translation of the book title Indignez-Vous by French best-selling author Stephane Hessel. The piece draws inspiration from this excerpt from the book: "If you want to be a real human being you cannot tolerate things which put you to indignation, to outrage. You must stand up. I always say to people: Look around, look at what makes you unhappy, what makes you furious, and then engage yourself in some action." Time for Outrage! is an expression of the composer’s injustices of the world - of whatever kind.

The first movement (Breaking the Silence) begins in almost ghostly silence followed by a long crescendo that brings the music to a peak (Silence is Broken) before the music sinks back into silence, the cry of embarrassment seeming to fade away. In the second movement (Troubled), I try to portray musically both the angst and the affection for the human race. In the third movement (Rock the Culprits!), the guilty are “rocked,” relentlessly and unceasingly, to the end of the composition.
