Dear music friends,
May I inform you about some current events that may interest you:
The new harp piece “Boann’s song” was premiered on the 22nd September at the Pulsnitz Castle in Germany by Heloise Ph. Palmer and will be performed at the Museum of Arts (Kunstmuseum) tomorrow at 4pm together with “to the night 1” and “to the night 2” in a special – superimposed – version realized by Heloise Ph. Palmer.
The 2012 Contemporanea Festival in Udine (Italy) will feature 2 portrait concerts on my music to be broadcast ‘live’ on the Internet on 20th and 21st October at 9pm (European Continental Time), 8pm (GMT). The second concert will feature the world premiere of “Musica Reservata”, a piano cycle of 12 pieces written in 1989. Herewith the links:
