Dutch pianist Marcel Worms invited a number of composers to write a blues for him Krüs was one of them. Rembrandt van Rijns love for his wife Saskia - who passed away at an early age - is the theme of the blues she composed for Worms.
This work is part of the album Blues in red, white and blue published by peermusic in Hamburg and also appeared on CD.
From the score: Rembrandt paints, large and small brush strokes,
he paints the light, shapes the dark
delicate high notes, firm low notes
then his thoughts wander, he thinks of Saskia
paintbrush still in hand
music tranquil, clear, like a calm heartbeat
