Trennung (2020)

  • Category: Largo and Allegro for 15 Strings
  • Project date: 05 September, 2020 (postponed)

I completed this composition during the lockdown period of Spring 2020.
The 15 string players are treated as invididuals. They play together, somethimes, and also go their own way(s).
They are sometimes in harmony with each other and sometimes not.
They might say the same thing at the same time, sometimes there is a phase difference.

Yet there is always harmony. The beginning is a violin solo, representing a person cut off from the outside world.
Then the introduction opens as a kind of dream, followed by a dance in which all voices go
their separate ways and come together again finally. The violins end the whole in the dreamy atmosphere of the beginning.
