This suite of four movements is centered on four paintings by the great 17th century Dutch master, Rembrandt van Rijn. Throughout the work, use is made of the ‘chain’ technique of composition in which the end of one section becomes the beginning of the next. I: Self-portrait Rembrandt’s portrait of himself in late middle-age shows a dignified figure with a rather sad, resigned countenance. This first movement consists of a solemn theme in G minor, beginning very simply with a single line and growing through a series of canons, in the manner of a preliminary sketch that an artist might make for a painting, adding more and more detail and colour as the work progresses. After a statement by the full band, the music becomes uneasy and, while representative of the troubles and difficulties in Rembrandt’s life, also acts as an introduction to the next movement into which it leads without a break. II: Christ in the storm on the lake of Galilee Lighning flashes, thunder crashes and the sea heaves alarmingly as a violent storm breaks out over Lake Galilee. The disciples try to manage the vessel in which Christ, seemingly unconcerned, sleeps soundly (he is represented by a chorale beginning in the trombones). His frightened disciples rouse him, He rebukes the wind and the waves and, as the Bible tells us, ‘immediately there was a great calm.’ This music forms a bridge to the next movement. III: Saskia In 1634, Rembrandt married Sakia van Uylenburg, the daughter of an art dealer, who he used as a model in many of his paintings. Her life was not easy, often beset with financial worries and three of her children dying in infancy, while she herself died of tuberculosis in 1642. Her music, in G flat, is tender and compassionate with a central section tinged with melancholy. After a modulation and a warm climax, the music settles on a soft chord of A flat major, setting the scene for the final movement. IV: The militia company of Captain Frans Banning Cocq Once known as The Night Watch, upon cleaning, it became clear that Captain Banning Cocq’s militia is marching from a dark, covered alleyway into bright sunlight. The music begins very softly with a distant side drum beating a march rhythm and a tune on muted cornets. The company comes ever closer and, amid fanfares, marches into the sunlight, Captain Frans Banning Cocq at its head.
