GERHARD STÄBLER: “Stillschreiend anders” (2017) for guitar duo

This new work was written for the guitar duo steuber.öllinger (Johannes Öllinger and Martin Steuber, pictured right), who premiered the piece last November in Leipzig, before performances in Bamberg and Herrsching.


CECILIA ARDITTO: “Life on Mars” (2016) for clarinet, accordion and cello

“Life on Mars is a trip between tonality and micro-tonality. When zooming in from a scale to a single tone and within that single tone to a micro-tone scale, our perception moves progressively deeper and deeper into the sound. Imagine that the perception of tones and micro-tones resembles observing Mars from Earth while getting increasingly closer to it’s surface; after a while our eyes can’t embrace the whole planet anymore, only the small details.”
