In the days ahead the premiere of my symphonic poem ‘Der Hirschsprung’, I got in touch with Mihai Corodan, Tubist for the concert. We had a couple of brief chats in which he signaled great interest in premiering a more chamber’esque work from me.
I love writing for brass as its very nature resembles a lot with my more rhythmic understanding of music. The moment I started working on the new piece the ideas just poured out of me, the whole process was such a fun and unique experience.
Brass Quintet No. 1 is a throwback to my childhood where every movement describes a strong and distinct memory that I still cherish to this day and age. It's a photograph of years long gone.
The creation of this work was made possible with the financial support of the Förderverein für Kunst, Medien und Wissenschaft e.V. Karlsruhe. My deepest gratitude goes out to all the members and their artistic director Saule Tatubaeva.
Premiere TBA in 2023
