Goethe Institute: Virtual Partner Residency

With kind support of Goethe Institute s “Virtual Partner Residencies” Mexican composer Georgina Derbez and myself have been working on a new composition for solo accordion. TRANSIT was virtually premiered for SWR radio #zusammenspielen (broadcast in the fall) and live performances are scheduled as soon as circumstances allow. The piece is inspired by the life and work of German author Anna Seghers who spent her exile years in Mexico in the 1940s and always felt a strong connection between those two cultures. I am very grateful for this opportunity to work closely with Georgina on a new work despite the distance.
