Turning Points in My Life
My path was never a straight one, not in Japan and not in Europe. Everywhere I encountered labyrinths, and still encounter them today. But there were many friends who helped me during my meanderings. They gave me advice – which I ignored. They offered me shelter – for which I did not give them thanks. They provided me with food and warmth – which I refused out of spite. For music alone I am full of gratidude and awe.
But I keep asking myself: what is going to happen to me? For this program I selected works that influenced me musically, but also some of my own pieces created during important turning points in my life.
