In La Cittadella Kees Vlak reflects the stark contrasts in the Italian mountain village Assisi. On the one hand there is the bustle of the hundreds of thousands visitors who have come to admire the beautiful San Francesco Basilica. On the other hand within the city walls there is La Cittadella, a complex of buildings where severely handicapped people are taken care of by sisters. The dissonant main theme in the solo trumpet depicts the isolation of these people. Still, the loving care of the sisters provides some light in the darkness. This beautiful piece will bring a sense of spiritual love to any concert.
