In the words of the composer...

"Writing a piece for the Terezín Music Foundation was for me a task about the incredible and mysterious power of music to create freedom under almost every possible circumstance. The issue of freedom is crucial especially in chamber music. On one hand the few players have to concentrate to stay a very well balanced sound "machine," on the other hand they have to find freedom to express themselves individually.

"In 'Escape Routines,' the five instruments act as a very close family: at certain moments, they create one unique energy by melding the very different ways of creating sound. At other moments, they try to find routine patterns to escape into their soloist freedoms. But where is really this freedom of music: is it in those individual escapes of each player? Or is indeed in the unique way of being together in sound? In the possibility to escape together?"
