Notes

  • Program notes: 

    The piece is inspired by One Day / One Life of little bug, who lives just one day. Mayfly, which occurs „one day“ during the spring time in our little garden… I have choose latin title for my piece, Palingenia. The piece consists of three parts, the Awakening, Liveness and Fallen asleep (like a funeral lament). The evolution of this bug proceeds quite a long time, but their beautiful „dance of life“ ends like a huge „flower“ consists of their white bodies on the river. Local fishermans used to call it by Hungarian name,“Dunavirag“, The Flower of Danube“. The miracle of life and dying stroke me so deeply, that I try to embody my imagination into the large scale of the symphonic piece. The piece describes the process of above mentioned three parts separately, I want to underline their life-giving heat energy, the desire of life..

    H. CH. Andersen: „Does all beauty of the world stop when you die? No, said the Old Oak, it will last much longer than I can even think of. Well, then, said the little May-fly, we have the same time to live, only we reckon differently.“
