Struggling heavily to finish a lengthy essay on omni-tonal 24-prelude sets for piano from Soviet Russia, dealing in particular with music by Shostakovich and Kabalevsky. To be published soon on Academia.edu, as well as on my labyrinthian personal website.
Just Finished: Children’s Kaleidoscope
Recently completed Kinderkaleidoskop, four little piano pieces, dedicated to my daughter Cosima for her fourth birthday, and incorporating some children’s tunes beloved by the dedicatee 😉
Just Finished: Dichte Lieder
Recently completed: Three Marginal Madrigals (Dichte Lieder) on poems by Lennart Schilgen, dedicated to Nathalie Seelig, Alexandra Lachmann, Stefan Görgner, Martin Netter, and Amnon Seelig of Vokalquintett Berlin. Will complete the typesetting soon.
Learning Music by Heart
Looking forward to presenting my two-day workshop on music learning and performing from memory at Badisches Konservatorium Karlsruhe this weekend. More than twenty participants have registered—never thought I’d be such a crowd puller!
