NEW COMPOSITIONS - early in 2021In contrast to the performers on stage - singers, soloists or ensembles - who are subject to a real professional ban, the composers can still compose and write their works.... even if the performances are permanently cancelled or have been postponed to a frustrating distance. Self-motivation has become arduous, vital flow is something other than the momentary paralysis of being winged. Nevertheless, twelve works have already been written in this year 2021.....
