, Sanders Theatre, Cambridge MA upon the poem 'Fenster wo ich einst mit dir' by Stefan George
Poetry has been a source of inspiration since I started writing music. For many years I have been composing pieces of very different types, ranging from chamber opera to pure electro-acoustic pieces, upon texts by Georg Trakl and Karl Lubomirski. The poem Fenster wo ich einst mit dir by Stefan George evoked a strong resonance and inspired me to express in music the feelings and thoughts one experiences after losing a person with whom one was very close. Deception, anger, restlessness and finally a kind of positive calm went into this piece.
