The review...

I really enjoyed playing this concert: both the space and Young-Jae Lee's ceramics in dialogue with paintings were inspiring, and an extremely attentive, packed-in audience brought a lot of energy to the evening as well. Thanks to everyone, including the team of Sinclair-Haus and Altana Stiftung, and the photographer Michael Habe!

P.S. The blue shawl I put on for Stockhausen's piece HARMONIEN (Harmonies), which he wrote for the 5th hour of the day, designating the corresponding color "HKS 50 blue" to be worn in performance!

Concert in Bad Homburg (near Frankfurt) August 11, 7 p.m.

One last concert before taking a break:

In the context of an exhibit of wonderful ceramics by the amazing potter Young-Jae Lee, I will offer music for solo flute. When I was first asked by the venue for program suggestions, I thought mainly of pieces by Korean composers as well as Korean- or at least Asian-influenced music. However, after actually experiencing the exhibit, reading interesting commentary, and (very important) meeting Ms. Lee herself, I was moved to make some program changes to reflect her philosophy, her working processes, and of course the atmosphere of the current exhibit.

The final version:
Works by Younghi Pagh Paan, Kaija Saariaho, Eiko Tsukamoto, J.S. Bach, Karlheinz Stockhausen
