Greed is of all time. This composition shows an amused look at this destructive behavior in our society. The intro of the piece is followed by a structure in which the title is exhibited in a musical way. The melodic motifs are stacked and each one has an extra tone, illustrating the ever more and more feeling that seems to dominate our society. The accompanying accelerando also highlights this feeling.The following part gives a sometimes relativizing and amused, sometimes an even more questionable look at the theme. The composition has of course an optimistic ending. Besides partly programmatic this piece is intended to be varied and intense. Intensive in character but also intense for the players who sometimes have to switch quickly between the tuned and non-tuned instruments in their part.
