Looking forward to the Berlin-Brandenburgian first performance of my composition »Lyric Diptych« for two female voices and piano, included in a fascinating recital programme presented by Anne-Sophie Balg, Caroline Seibt, and Marina Mitrovski of Ensemble 2achtundachtzig, on Sunday, 23 September, 5 pm, in the Protestant Church Kleinmachnow. Folk songs and adaptations are awaiting you, among them my rendering of Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach‘s »Ein kleines Lied«. The venue is just around the corner from Berlin. Catch a bus and drop by!
I am pleased to learn that, after performances in Germany, Switzerland, Italy, the Netherlands, South Korea, the United States, and Mexico, my instrumental duo suite Zoological Garden is scheduled in the Chamber Music Hutt Valley concert series in Lower Hutt, New Zealand, for May 2018. Thank you in advance, flautist Karen Batten and violist Sophia Acheson of the Toru Trio, and thank you also, Ingrid Bauer for getting in touch! Never thought that these capricious little miniatures would turn out to be my most successful composition.
The sheet music of my new duet composition entitled »Lyric Diptych« is now available on IMSLP. It comprises settings of the German folksong »Es saß ein klein Waldvögelein« and of Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach‘s poem »Ein kleines Lied«, each scored for two voices and piano. The music was commissioned by Anne-Sophie, Caroline and Marina of Trio 2achtundachtzig. Looking forward to the premiere!
It’s an organ transplantation! I felt that my music could use a bit of ecclesiastical reverberation, so I arranged my keyboard piece November Lament for the queen of instruments. If you are an organist aiming to enlarge your repertoire with an affective secular composition, please find the sheet music here.
