A song that particularly embodies the philosophy of life as expressed by the rock generation from which ter Veldhuis emerges. There must be some way out of here said the joker to the thief. There's too much confusion I can't get no relief... The text can be seen as optimistic or despairing, but also as encapsulating an idea to be explored. That is the spirit in which the Third Quartet was conceived. The music is all about sound, about the forces of attraction and ...
