> DESCRIPTION

"Nummer veertien, home" spans across exceptional distance and time. Created as a Requiem in three movements with twelve acts, van der Werve performs a 1,000 mile triathlon from Warsaw to Paris, retracing the reverse path of Frédéric Chopin's heart. Chopin, before his death in 1849, asked his sister to fulfill his intent request of returning his heart to his native Poland. His heart was interred in the Church of the Holy Cross while his body remained at the Père Lachaise Cemetery. Intermixed in this classic Requiem are the tales of Alexander the Great's military campaign and van der Werve's own deadpan, but candid, humer in his personal narratives of endurance and the concept of home.
