Our quintet concert review in the Jülich local paper this weekend
The last three weeks have been pretty hectic with lots of travel, concerts, and workshops. This week I have returned to Dresden and am catching up with many things including some arranging of Piazzolla for our violin/tuba duo. We had our first rehearsal last Saturday in Cologne and we have decided on a programme of music to arrange, with the emphasis on folk melodies from different countries. We are also luckily having 3 brand new works written for us by Mijin Oh from South Korea, Johannes Marks from Germany, and Daniel Cueto from Peru. I am really excited about this project as it is a really interesting sound to experiment with, and I can't wait to hear what the composers come up with. I also now have the final draft of my solo piece from Richard Greer, which looks like a great challenge. Please check out some of the composers below who are involved in this project!
