The orchestra sonata was created on the occasion of the youth music camp 2019 of the BVBW, to which I was invited as conductor and composer together with Dirk Mattes and Dominik Wagner. The piece, which is characterized by the late romantic style, follows the sonata form in a broad sense. Although it is not particularly difficult in itself, the numerous open passages and rapid changes in tempo require most players to play at an advanced level.
After a long time collecting impressions and ideas for a first piece in a “own” style, Red Eye was created within 3 weeks. The piece demands a massive orchestra, all of which are excellent players. An analysis of the work was published in the December 2019 issue of WASBE World.
