!!! PIANO ACCOMPANIMENT VERSION !!!
Fortune's Fool was commissioned by Harmen Vanhoorne. With this piece he won several prices among wich the British Open Solo Championship (UK) and the Ern Keller Memorial Trophee (AUS). Fortune's Fool will be recorded and published on CD in 2012.
William Shakespeare's play, Romeo and Juliet, was the inspiration for Stan Nieuwenhuis's Fortune's Fool. The piece is divided in two parts, the first symbolizing Romeo's difficult quest for an impossible relationship and the second, his emotions. The piece begins with a rather slow introduction representing for Romeo's feelings of hopelessly in love, expressed by a broad melody with wide intervals.
The second part, symbolising Romeo's turbulent emotions, is fast and powerful with an easily-recognised basic motive. The dark atmosphere of the latter half of the story is in evidence hereand Romeo, on an emotional rollercoaster, is 'Fortune's Fool' himself. The finale of the work features a cadenza, very challenging from a technical point of view, which represents, for the last time Romeo's sadness.
