When writing programme notes I think you should put the listener in the right frame of mind so they get the most out of the music. You need to frame the work so the audience really want to concentrate and enjoy it.

I do not know the Moritz, but as a random example saying that a work uses algorithmic techniques is not as interesting as saying the composer wrote it after hearing nuns chant in a medieval monastery during a visit to Syria. It is also a good idea to use words that have attractive connotations. In the U.K. programme writers often use aggressive words like confrontation, questioning, dangerous etc. Far better to use positive words that make the audience feel good - providing they describe the music, of course.
