LUN 4004 Across the Bridge
For renowned flutist Eleonore Pameijer, Krüs composed a cycle inspired by the famous Chainbridge in Budapest, the first bridge to connect the Hungarian cities of Buda and Pest in 1849. Together with pianist Lodewijk Crommelin she performed it in one of the Uilenburger Concerts in Amsterdam on May 14, 2012. The piece requires a bit of acting from both players.
From the score: Flute and piano are trying to reach each other, each from a different side of
the bridge. Like a love duet, audacious, hesitating, inviting. Shy at first,
then hearts open. A dance of joy, ending in a quiet embrace.
