hide to show is a new project I am working on together with Nadar on a full-length compositon with live-video for the wonderful Concertgebouw in Brugge. On the photo you see Jan de Moor and Pieter Matthynssens during a tour around this impressive piece of architecture. They make this possible :)
Eventually Key Jane comes back to South-Germany. The performance is in Esslingen, close to Stuttgart, where Gwenaelle Rouger played the first Key Jane version. I will update soon, where exactly the performance will take place.
With Magnus Loddgard, for the first time a conductor will play Key Jack. Actually it is an interestng question for me, if Key Jack has to be played by a pianist. Dear friends in Berlin, if you are interested to go, I would be happy to receive some news about this concert with other pieces by Moritz Eggert and Christoph Breidler.
Elisa Medinlla goes on performing Key Jane in Brussels. This will the first time I will see her playing the piece. I am looking forward a lot!
The impression on the photo shows Gwenaelle Rouger performing Key Jane in Hamburg. Soon there will be brandnew photos with Elisa.
Elisa and Frederic play Doppel in Gent, this time in the Handelsbeurs,in their piano guide program together with Brigitta Muntendorf's Key of Presence and other pieces by Frederic Croene, Czerny and Ligeti. I am very curious if Frederik will equal his record from last time and play a passage that had never been played right before again without mistakes :-)
Andrej plays Key Jack 6 times in two days in the Performance Hello Avatar together with pieces by Brigitta Muntendorf and Alexander Schubert. I am very happy that Key Jack is performed in this context outside the contemporary music world. The event is created by Brigitta Muntendorf and Warped Type.
Andrej performs Key Jack a second time with his very special style I appreciate very much. I mean not only his great interpretation but also his clothes! The concert is part of the new 4:3 Kammer Musik Neu events in the Tonlagen Festival in Hellerau. This concert is designed by Brigitta Muntendorf for Decoder.
Und Sechs is a piece for six instruments with fixed media stereo tape. I composed Und Sechs in 2000. It was the 4th piece of the number series and the last one before I started to work with video. Beides it is the starting point of my approach towards pop music.
The concert in the Theaterhaus in Stuttgart will start again with Die Drei. It is one of my rare pices without electronics. The first performance with soprano instead of counter tenor in Barcelona has been a pleasure and the singers perform this demanding composition very very well! Pass by if you can!
Together with transit and Die Drei, Lluisa Espigolé (photo) and Mireilla Vendrell, the pianists of Crossing Lines, perform Doppel for 2 pianos with live-av. They did a great job in Barcelona in March. I am very happy to see it again in the concert in Stuttgart.
Finally Elisa Medinilla is playing Key Jane in the famous Doppelganger project of Nadar. And she is playing it in Stuttgart in the cellars of Kunstraum 34 where I had one of my first performances with electronics a much too long time ago.
And it is going on with Beil pieces in Hindsgavl. Both Jacks will be played in Denmark for the first time in a festival together. Eva Boesch will be the first woman to perform String Jack and I think I also should call it String Jane then even though there's nothing to change in the tape.
09 Mai 2018 | Die Drei | Neue Vocalsolisten | Acht Brücken Festival in Cologne
My one and only piece without anything performed in St. Peter with everything by the unique singers of Neue Vocalsolisten from Stuttgart. It's a short program mixed with woodwind pieces played by Calefax.
Lluisa Espigolè performs the female version of Key Jack named Key Jane in Palau de Musica in Valencia during the famous ensems festival together with pieces by Joanna Bailie, Manuel Rodríguez, Valenzuela Núria, Giménez Comas and Johannes Kreidler.
The concert in Auditori in Barcelona will start with Die Drei. It is one of my rare pices without electronics and it has not been performed since 2003. So this will be a trip in the past for me. Actually it is also a first performance as the part for counter tenor will be replaced by soprano.
Together with transit and Die Drei, Lluisa Espigolé and Mireilla Vendrell (photo), the pianists of Crossing Lines, perform Doppel for 2 pianos with live-av. It will be the first performance of Doppel with two women. I am looking forward a lot to this experience.
This is the premiere of transit. After preparing the vocal and scenic part in Stuttgart with the great singers of Neue Vocalsolisten we finally travel to Barcelona to meet the musicians of Crossing Lines to put the parts together for the first performance.
