Almost the Last of the year… Four Readers IV!

On the next Saturday 6th of July I have my last concert/performance of the year, and this time in Catalonia! It’s just funny that I coming from there but I premiered there almost nothing, so I am very happy that now the chance came again 🙂

So this time I am premiering there the fourth version of “four readers“, this time in Catalan, based on the book “Birnam” by Víctor Sunyol. Víctor is a fantastic author, and was actually my teacher of Catalan in Highschool, so it’s very nice to use his works for this fourth performance of the piece. And it makes it even more special, that I had the pleasure to work with three good friends that made a staging of the piece: Alba Font Villar, Cèlia Martínez Pladevall and Yula Chernykh. I am willing to see the result!

Adventure ist vorbei!

Adventure project finished and with it almost my “concert season”. It was a really wonderful experience to work with such a great Ensemble as Musikfabrik!

Sara Cubarsi, Axel Porath, Elio Herrera, Florentin Ginot and the Soprano Elena Plaza premiered my very brief piece “Unterweisung im Singen”, after the text for Julio Cortázar. I am willing to post the recording!

“Unterweisung im Singen” – HfMT Köln + Musikfabrik

Rehearsing a piece is always something exciting, but I must admit this week with Musikfabrik I had one of my best rehearsal-experiences of my life! It’s just amazing to work with these incredible musicians with also so a nice work-flow and mood to play new music of students.

I am very looking forward to Adventure #1, the first concert of a collaboration between Institut für neue Musik and Ensemble Musikfabrik in Köln, where my piece “Unterweisung im Singen – Bearbeitung des gleichnamigen Texte von Julio Cortázar” will be performed by Musikfabrik and the Soprano Elena Plaza.

Abschlussprüfung is coming!

It’s hard to believe my Master in Instrumental Composition in die HfMT-Köln is almost finished! But in order to do it, first comes my Abschlussprüfung 🙂

On the next Saturday, the 8th of June at 19:30, I am doing my Abschlusskonzert with a very special premiere. I’ve been working on “wenn ich aufhören könnte, von Dir zu träumen” [if I could stop dreaming about you] since September 2018, and on the 8th it will be finally on stage. It is a piece for Ensemble, Video and Electronics, with a very special Theatrical-Performance part; an also for the first time of my life I am not only composer but Filmmaker, Director and Plot-writer. So it will be definitely a exciting experience.
