Finished new piece / Working on more
After a very intense january, premiering my concertpiece for soloviolin and orchestra “Valentinas Air – Bens Jig” in Großes Festspielhaus, Salzburg feat. Benjamin Schmid and the Bläserphilharmonie Salzburg, rehearsing for the last record for the Debut CD of np3 in February and doing quite a few chambermusic concerts, I finally finished the piece “Fluchtgedanken”, scored for Flute, Alto Saxophone, Violin, Violincello, Doublebass, Piano and Percussion, which is going to be premieried by Ensemble Platypus in two concerts on March 7th and 8th in Echoraum, Vienna (for details see “Dates”).
It’s great to have been comissioned with a lot of new compositions and arrangements, including a violinconcerto in collaboration with the Tonkünstler Vienna in this year (there will be a post about this very special occasion soon), a piece for 10 horns and percussion (2016) and a stringorchestra version of Valentinas Air, which is going to be premiered at the finalconcert of the Mattseer Diabelli Sommer 2015, and a lot more.
Incredibly happy to start the new work!
