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. 2022 steht das Werk im Finale des Kompositionswettbewerb der World Association for Bands and Ensembles in Prag, wo es zur Uraufführung kommen wird.

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..
