Info

This little nocturne “Abendmond” (evening moon) combines two German folk tunes: “Abend wird es wieder” (It’s evening again) and “Der Mond ist aufgegangen” (The moon has risen). I present the tunes both separately and together. “Abendmond” is a calm and peaceful little piece without technical challenges, so you can lose yourself in creating music. The soft tunes leave enough room to fully focus on aspects such as interaction, intonation, phrasing and tone quality. The thoughtful structure with many tutti passages and clever use of cues allows for sonorous performances even by smaller bands. This composition can be a calm censura in a concert program or (soft) encore. I wrote “Abendmond” in remembrance of Antonie Rundel (1943-2016), the senior partner and “good soul” of Musikverlag RUNDEL.
