'Minimize Art' for solo instrument & metronome - Els Millenaar (bass and treble clef)
I wrote minimize art in 2008 in a playful reaction to the announcement of the first measures taken- the abolishments of subsidies seemed improbable and unbelievable, and they would never last.
Five years on we know better- cuts are still imposed in a great many disciplines and fields throughout society, and we still can’t see where it will end.
I revised the piece and am hopeful that the player will execute it with humor- it is the only way to survive trying times. Place the metronome on a stool or wooden box so it will be heard and seen.
Between the parts: take time to adjust the tempo.
Changes: Time signature from 4/4 to 2/2 and extra notes in regard to the execution. The piece is suitable for all brass instruments (treble- and bass clef) and various other instruments like clarinet and bassoon. Other arrangements by request.
