13.4.14 with musik21niedersachsen 'Ein Kinderspiel' and Sakura Variations by Helmut Lachenmann at the Hochschule für Musik, Theater und Medien Hannover
is an improvisation on J. S. Bach's holy cross theme (in this case e,c,f,g#) and arabic sounding effects. In 2006 I travelled through Syria and was captivated by the arabic culture; not only unforgettable landscape and delicious food, but also warmth and friendliness of the people and the mixture of different religions. In Damascus, I saw a church and Mosque built next to each other and so in this piece, I was wanted to somehow unite the spiritual elements of these religions in music. This piece is dedicated to Dr. Bettina Engelke and visual artist Wolfgang Tiemann with whom I travelled.
