2. Orchester-Sonate – Die Tageszeiten (Times of the Day)

Die 2. Orchestersonate entstand 2020 und wurde im Rahmen des Projekts Orchester*stücke aufgenommen. Im gleichen Jahr konnte ich mit dem Werk einen Finalplatz im National Band Association / William D. Revelli Memorial Band Composition Contest erringen.

The sonata „Times of the Day“ describes some moments of the day in a remote mountain village:
The Gray of Dawn – i.e. not wanting to get up while the sun rises over the peaks and finally being forced to by a terrible alarm clock, the obligatory Coffee Machine – from the rather uncomfortable perspective of a coffee bean, the Noon Sleepiness – which is almost a legitimation for cozy procrastination, as well as the Hustle and Bustle of Evening – the seeming calming down of such a village, which is broken up by the cheerful, perhaps slightly drunk village band.

In the rather abstract second movement, the orchestra is accompanied by a tape that consists entirely of electronically altered instrumental recordings.

The fourth movement was commissioned by the Musikverein Bissingen/Teck e.V..
