Mixtum"The 'German Corner' in Koblenz inspired this piece. The place is so named because here the Rivers Rhine and Moselle meet. In my piece I bring this confluence to expression: two rivers encounter each other, each with its own speed and colour; they run parallel, gradually come together and become a single river. My musical source material is water, which on the one hand is the connecting element of the two rivers, but on the other hand also has opposed characters and colourings. These two aspects intermingle more and more in the course of the music and finally merge into each other."
