This morning: My first application for a professoral position at UdK Berlin, Faculty of Music. Audition could have went worse, even if I’m not overconfident. — Tonight: My first premiere on an electronic piano. Looking forward to introducing a new piece in the Composer Slam at Musikfestival Heidelberger Frühling.
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.
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 😉
