Glimmer of Globe and Two Dances / Hans Bakker

To celebrate the 75th anniversary of the famous Hilversum town hall Hans Bakker made two compositions for the carillon, Two Dances and Glimmer of Globe, and a piece for carillon and saxophone ensemble, Ambiente Global. The compositions are a sign of gratitude, given by the Globe Centrum voor Kunst en Cultuur (GlobeCKC) to the city of Hilversum, for making the town hall available for a musical and artistic weekend in which also two carillon recitals were given.

Two Dances (Dudok Samba abd Globe Rag) sounds joyous, but asks for a virtuoso player. Glimmer of Globe is a set of unorthodox variations on a Russian folksong. The piece is an hommage to the town hall's architect W.M. Dudok and it is dedicated to the inhabitants of Hilversum and their carilloneur Freek Bakker.

At the last concert of the weekend Hans Bakker presented his compositions to the mayor of Hilversum - Ernst Bakker - in the presence of carilloneur Freek Bakker. The first movement of Ambiente Global can be downloaded at www.hansbakkermusic.com.
