Work introduction

Although they last only a few minutes, Impressions are yet a creation of brilliant, differently characterised mosaics, Berger’s virtuosity not limited to the orchestral fireworks (as in Sägewerk [“Sawmill”] and Werkstattrhythmen [“Workshop Rhythms”]); it extends to the art of tone-painting, including his imaginative scoring for glockenspiel, bells, harp, xylophone and vibraphone. The result is a cycle of bucolic landscape images which, as the composer’s subtitle suggests, listeners can hear and also see in their mind’s eye.
