Velocity 020 was written for Tim Ouwejan and Martin Schippers.
This fun piece for trombone, bass trombone and piano tells the story of life in Amsterdam as a cyclist.
Riding a bike is an essential experience in Amsterdam. A typical Amsterdam street scene sees countless cyclists either heading to or from work, transporting young children to school, or carrying anything from groceries or house pets to impressively tricky artifacts like ladders of even bulky furniture.
With this in mind, it can seem to outsiders like cycling is simply built into the Dutch DNA.
Velocity 020 takes you over 100 km of canals, cobbled streets, quaint bridges and colorful terraces.
Enjoy the ride.
