Six Gardens for harp (2013, 16’)

First performance: Hartberg/Austria, Gartenatelier bellabayer, July 20th 2013, as a soundtrack

Six Gardens was written for the 2013 Garten & Kunst Festival at bellabayer, Hartberg, Austria. At bellabayer, several completely different entourages are created in a relatively compact garden, ranging from a lily field, a bamboo bush, a pond area, a shady hillside and a vegetable garden to a so-called Jause, where visitors can relax after their garden visit. In Six Gardens, I have tried to create music that fits the atmosphere of each of those entourages, and to capture those moods so strongly that they remain intact when transported to a concert hall.
