Violeta Dinescu (RO/DE) – 109.2

Violeta Dinescu about her piano piece “109.2”:

“109.2” habe ich für Susanne Kessels Projekt “250 piano pieces for Beethoven” geschrieben.

Der Titel hat eine Korrespondenz mit der Zeit, in der ich an das Stück gedacht habe. Ich war in Kromeriz (Cehien) und bemerke nolens volens wie die Häuser und Strassen benannt waren. Man sah an einem Haus: 1209.512 z.B. So kam mir die merkwürdige Idee, einen Titel zu finden, in dem es um Gedanken an Beethoven geht, die kryptisch erscheinen könnten, da für ein kurzes Stück nichts anders (für mich) möglich wäre. Ich habe mich auf den 2. Satz (einige Töne im UR-Kontext aber auch im erweiterten Kontext) von der Sonate op. 109 konzentriert.”
