Nicht einen Platz hat die Schönheit für Kontrabassklarinette solo (2011); UA Wien 2011
In our dark:
Beauty possesses not only one place
The entire space intended for it,
René Char (1943-1944)
The composition „... nicht einen Platz hat die Schönheit ...“ („... not only one place is intended for beauty ...“) for double bass clarinet was written in Mülheim an der Ruhr (Germany) in 2011. It is dedicated to the musician cnd composer Theo Nabicht. The work is inspired by a dialogue with him, that twined around the beauty of the sound of the double bass clarinet, and finally about the essence of music today, and the apprehension that music degenerates to mere design serving a society that is dominated „fighting“ for „freedom“ with all desastrous means (particularily with those for war) instead of using all available resources of the earth to create a degnified, beautiful life.
