Fancy a musical performance in an extraordinary location? My composition Telemanniana will be premiered in the context of Theater Magdeburg‘s youth project »Telemann bewegt«, celebrating the 250th anniversary of the composer’s death. Join us in one of Telemann’s favourite places in his native city—come to the Gruson-Gewächshäuser this Friday, April 21, and listen to the chorus of Hegel-Gymnasium Magdeburg and awesome baritone Thomas Florio, conducted by Astrid Schubert. Performances start at 2pm, 4pm, and 6pm, surrounded by exotic plants and flowers. More details here.
The repertoire for guitar and marimba duo is not what you would call a cornucopia (no horns involved, naturally). However, I made a contribution. Guitarists and percussionists are invited to have a look at my composition At the Forest Verge which is now finished and typeset, consisting of four short pieces inspired by my favourite trees and their specifically-shaped leaves. You can download the sheet music here on my IMSLP page.
Dear folks, I’ll have the considerable pleasure to perform two of my own compositions in a faculty concert next Friday, 10 February, 7:30 pm, at Joseph Joachim hall, Berlin University of the Arts. As the opener to a versatile programme including viola d’amore, jazz vocals, and improvisations on Schubert, my piano cycle Children’s Kaleidoscope will experience its first complete performance, along with the sombre November Lament (yes, still not matching the month of presentation). Admission is free—it’d be so much of a delight if you joined the audience!
Now that the eleventh month has come, here is a suitable background music from my manufacture. Make yourself comfy, brew a cup of tea, and enjoy my piano piece November Lament. May all of you get through this gloomy, cold, and rainy season well!
