    Jakob Jež: Irridescences for voice and piano (text: Milan Dekleva):

    Honey-coloured irridescence

    No trace

    The rhythm of the sun

    in the evening rain.

    After completing my Ten Songs (Ed. DSS 1431, 1996), which I composed in a more traditional, modernist style, I came across a book of poetry by Milan Dekleva (Mushi mushi, 1971); reading these poems compelled me to seek more abstract forms of expression, where melodic line is not traditionally rounded, but enriched with unusual jumps and periods of stasis. Similarly, the piano writing combines contrasting qualities: contemplative meditation in parts, and lively and pulsing in others. These four miniatures are dedicated to loyal performers of my works, Barbara Jernejčič Fürst and Gaiva Bandzinaite and were intended as my contribution to their already very rich repertoire of lied.
