WTK2016BannerOne of the most inspiring cooperations I’ve ever contributed to was a small guitar concerto written by Juliana Hodkinson. We converted the regular instrument into an 8-string monster able to tune down 2 octaves while the four highest string form a quarter tone cluster that – enhanced with effect – sounds like no guitar has ever sounded before. After the premiere in Denmark and in 2016 I was asked to perform Solo with the WDR Symphony Orchestra Cologne, with Emilio Pomàrico as Director, at the Wittener Tage für neue Kammermusik 2016. It was broadcast live on WDR 3, you can listen to the performance over here (the part with Aart starts at 52.30m): http://konzertplayer.wdr3.de/klassische-musik/konzert/wdr-3-konzert-24042015/. After that we brought the piece to the Nordic Music Days in Reykjavik and to the SWR in Stuttgart.
