Knokler for solo classical guitar (2009/16)
Diego Castro Magaš
Starting in June of last year, Pavlos Antoniadis has taken on my solo piano piece when the panting STARTS (2002-4), written for and dedicated to Ian Pace, who last played it in 2009. Since last June, when he played it in Berlin, Pavlos has also performed this incredibly demanding piece in Athens and Belfast, with further performances to come. It’s fascinating to finally experience another performer taking on the work’s manifold challenges. Below is a video of the Berlin performance.
Starting very soon, my music will be published by Edition Gravis, Berlin. The first batch of scores will consist of my three most recent pieces as well as my current project, Razor’s Edge for fretless electric guitar and 6 players. Updates with details to follow soon.
Knokler for solo classical guitar, begun in 2008, is finally complete. It will be premiered by Diego Castro Magaš at the Alba New Music festival in Edinburgh on 7 October alongside works for electric guitar and electronics by Richard Barrett and Aaron Cassidy.
There is a short teaser interview with SWR about my piece for this year’s Donaueschingen Festival, Urðarbrunnr, here:
