This piano piece consists of 5 movements; every movement exposes a place on earth. The characteristics of the musical style’s of these country’s/areas are worked out in the different movements. China : Pentatonic scale. Africa : Rhythmical importance and the piano is used more as percussion instrument. Arabic: Use of augmented seconds. America : Variation on Yankee doodle. Europe : Waltz.
With this piece I won a second prize at the Prinses Christina concours for composition in 2007.
