My project „caja de viento“ as part of the dual year Germany-Mexico came to an end in April 2017 with a concert in Mexico City. I was proud to premier five new pieces which were chosen out of 14 submissions by an international jury (Georgina Derbez, Prof. Ipke Starke and myself)

The winners are

Andrés Guadarrama (1991) Hand Shadows I- II (2017)
Andrea Isabel Gonzales Nieto (1995) Ad infinitum (2017) for accordion and fixed media
Tobias Àlvarez (1996) Disosiación-és (2017)
Vladimir Aranda Rosales (1992) La materia del sueño (2017)
Rodrigo Martínez (1992) Radio Ruido (2017) for accordion and fixed media

Andrea Gonzales received the special prize of the jury for her piece „Ad infinitum“.

I am very happy with the result of the project. The level of all the submissions was very high. It was great to see the dedication and curiousity of these young composers to approach the accordion.
If you want to know more about „caja de viento“ you can find documentation about the three concert tours to Mexico that I made in 2016/17 on the Facebook page of the project.
Many thanks again to the Goethe Institute who made all of this possible!

Documentation of the final concert will soon be online and a CD release of the winner pieces is planned for 2018. Stay tuned!

I am very grateful for all the people who came to join us for our charity concert last Friday in Hamburg!
I performed with composer Carlos Andres Rico from Colombia and with Syrian composer and violinist Jehad Jazbeh and it was an intense evening with colourful music. We collected donations for the Syrian Expat Philharmonic Orchestra and for an initiative from Hamburg that donates bikes to refugees. Thank you everybody!

There will be workshops and concerts in different parts of the country followed by a call for scores for composers.
