Notes

  • Program notes: 

    In the traditional repertory the piano is often regarded as a harmonic instrument, adding tones to a chord. In "lauschgut" I tried to reduce the piano on "one voice", but to enlarge the range of listening at the same time towards the inner variety of sound which comes out when the piano is played both, on keys and on strings. The work gives five short pieces - connected by silence. Due to the risk of their playing techniques, the acoustic results are not completely "controllable" for the player. Celebrating the risk, but also the equality of pitch and noise makes aware of the unique fragility of sound as it occurs within the act of its performance.
