Awakening from Corona Hibernation
After a long, forced break, creative life resumes. I am happy to be back among musicians! I feel like a fish returned to water.
Music scholar Irene Suchy designed the series “History of Composition in Japan from 1945 to the present” [Die Geschichte des Komponierens in Japan 1945 bis heute] at the broadcaster ORF. The encounter at the Expo 1970 in Osaka between Toru Takemitsu and Karl Heinz Stockhausen was a major influence in my life as well.
