Loy Wesselburg (DE) – beethoven transforming gaps
Loy Wesselburg über sein piano piece „beethoven transforming gaps“:
„The composition is based on the idea of taking two major Beethoven motives („Violin Concerto, Larghetto op.61“, and „Rondo“) and slowly transforming those themes to something new. The two themes are“ The gaps between the notes are as important in a ZEN way as there are played notes. The gaps are becoming notes as well and following the idea in consequence they make room for new ideas that want to become ali-ve and make themselfves room in an existing composition“.
Loy Wesselburg über Ludwig van Beethoven:
„Surely Beethoven was a great source of inspiration to so many other musicians. Perfect in form and unique in his beauty of writing melody he was a great inspiration to me at the beginning of my career as a musician. Thanks to Susanne Kessel’s kind invitation to compose a piece for this project, I now re-connected to this great composer. Thank you Susanne!“
