This piece was written for a group of my students at the Katholieke Universiteit in Leuven (Belgium). The set of parts, two melodic with two 'echoing' them and three 'keyboards', is not strictly co-ordinated and not specific as to instrumentation. By the time of the first rehearsal I had still not found a title. As the musicians returned home from the rehearsal they chanced upon a group of ducks in the road, the ducks were scared. Hence the title Ettelijke bange eenden: 'Several scared ducks'. (c) Michael Finnissy 2008
