Sternschnuppen - Falling Stars

 

The CD *Sternschnuppen - falling stars* has been released in February 2020 on the label Neuklang Records.

A compositional project with string quartet and piano trio. 

 

 

Bei diesen Sternschnuppen bleibt kein Wunsch offen. - With these Falling Stars no wish remains unfulfilled.   - Jazzthing 2020 - 

 

With Falling Stars Eva Kess staked an incontrovertible claim as a jazz artist capable of turning chamber music conventions to her own devices.
The resulting music is as thrilling and fresh as the day after tomorrow.    - A.G. 2020 -

Eva Kess's music seems to effortlessly find the balance between disparate worlds. Floating etheral harmonies mingle with understated driving rhythmic grooves, simplicity and virtuosity converse with one another, and throughout one is left feeling that this music is a very cohesive whole, the result of a very clear vision and sharp focus.   - Jeremy Harman, Sirius Quartet 2020 -

*Theos Trampolin* Grosse Schanze Bern

The big hill goes back to plans of the Huguenot leader and fortress builder Théodore Agrippa d'Aubigné. The construction of the ski junmping hill was decided on March 30, 1622, and started in April of the same year. In 1634 the work was completed. Between 1834 and 1846 the plant was largely leveled; on it's last remnants todays stands the 1903 inaugurated main building of the University of Bern." (translated from Wikipedia)

 

I composed this picture. The composition has four parts:
