Ein Auszug aus dem Programm, das uns Stefan Hussong zur Verfügung stellte:

Daniel Marshall . Prana (2010, Deutsche Erstaufführung) Melanie Cazcarra, Akkordeon

Prana, the Sanskrit word for “breath”, is inspired by the accordion’s ability to produce sound by a manipulation of air analogous to breathing. The opening is characterized by denser musical material as well as uneven rhythms and bellow shakes comparable to shallow, irregular breathing.
The release of this tension is followed by more stable bellow movements and the clear portrayal of musical material. The conclusion of the piece features regular, measured bellow movements emitting only the sound of air, thereby deepening and steadying the metaphorical breathing. (Daniel Marshall)
Daniel Marshall is a Canadian composer originating from Calgary, Alberta.
He is currently studying composition at the University of Calgary under Allan Bell, David Eagle and Laurie Radford. In addition to composing music for the concert hall, Daniel has also produced an outdoor sound installation which was displayed on campus at the University of Calgary. In his free time, Daniel enjoys playing piano as a volunteer in various areas of the community including churches and schools.

Ben Kim . Mudang-Suite (1984, DEA)
Stefanie Mirwald, Akkordeon
A Mudang is a Korean shaman, usually female. Possessed by her gods and spirits during a rituals known as /gut/, she divines, exorcises, and heals. Her rituals are accompanied by a battery of traditional percussion instruments, peachtree branches, bell-trees, incense, and an awe-struck crowd.
As the first chord is heard, she begins her ritual by calling all her gods and spirits, inviting them into her body. Then, she sings, chants and pleads to the spirits now residing in her body, to grant her their powers. As she catches her breath and starts to dance, her consciousness drifts away while she beckons the spirits to take control. In a swirl of thick smoke, the clangor of music and the excited murmur of the crowd, the noise suddenly muffles and time slows down — she is entranced. Propelled by spiritual ecstasy, she hastens her dancing feet.
(Ben Kim)

Ali Nader Esfahani . Checkered world (2010, DEA)
Predrag Tomic, Akkordeon

‘Checkered World’ obviously implies a world which is marked by light and dark patches; like a chessboard. For me, what this music evokes is an old Iranian device which had openings that you could look through and see beautiful and colorful checkered images while listening to a wonderful kind of children’s music. This was before the invention and popularity of television and cinema.

In my perspective a composer or an artist in general, is always dreaming while creating. The only difference is that he is dreaming while he is awake. This piece is a reflection of that dreamlike mood. (Ali Nader Esfahani)

Ali Nader Esfahani is an Iranian composer who graduated with his bachelor’s degree in physics and completed his master’s program in composition. He moved to Canada in 2008 in order to continue his graduate studies. He is currently a student at the University of Calgary.

Han Ding (*1989). Burst. Etude for Accordion (2010, DEA)
Oroitz Maiz, Akkordeon
Burst is a short study for solo accordion, consisting of two distinct sections. It opens with tiny, barely audible squeaks, and builds up and up, leading to a climax of large volume and breadth. The seriousness of this is then mocked by a brief, sardonic polka, which fades into nothing. (Han Ding)

Blake Lewis . Exponitormentum Fatorum. “Fate” (2010, DEA)
Marina Hernaez, Akkordeon

Exponitormentum Fatorum refers to an engine of Fate. In some beliefs, there is a creation that governs the Fate or outcome of all things. In some cultures it is seen as a wheel or clock or river and in others it has been a deity. In this work the composer has taken a more literal view, giving it an industrial image.
The word “FATE” is used in the conception of this work, taking its musical letters “F, A and E” along with “B” (Represented by the Solfege syllable “Ti”). These notes and the intervals between them created the harmonic make-up for the entire piece. The repetition of the “E” is meant as a reminder that all things have an end which is reenforced by the one primary constant of this piece, the tempo of one beat per second. In the middle section there is a sense of stillness and lost time, however the tempo remains. All things end at their appointed time. (Blake Lewis)

Michalis Andronikou . Milonga needs two (2010, DEA)
Marina Hernaez & Oroitz Maiz, Akkordeon

Milonga needs two is a study on communication between the performers, between different kinds of arts, between various types of folk music such as Argentinian milonga and Greek dances, and ultimately, between a contemporary music work and its audience. It is a composition with dramatic aspects that requires both a theatrical and a musical approach by the performers, who pretend to be dancers as they enter the stage. (Michalis Andronikou)
Michalis Andronikou (1977) graduated from the Department of Music Studies, University of Athens, Greece. He holds a Diploma in Classical Guitar, Clarinet and Music Theory from the Trinity College and the Royal Academy of Music, and a Diploma in Byzantine Music from the Argyroupolis Municipal Conservatory. Michalis gained a degree in Harmony, Counterpoint, Fugue, and Music Composition (Prof. Theodor Antoniou) from the Hellenic Conservatory.
Moreover, he has studied Greek folk instruments such as Constantinople lute, tampoura and bouzouki. Currently, he is a doctoral candidate (ABD) in Musicology at the Music Department of the University of Athens and a PhD student in composition at the University of Calgary. Michalis has composed music for theatre plays, for small and large ensembles, songs, etc. Five CDs with his works have been released in Greece since 2003. His score of a guitar duo entitled “Latin Suite” is published by the Bulgarian company Balkanota.
