Item details

  • Description +
    • This piece was written on short notice in just one week to meet the deadline of the first edition of „Stellar Composition Competition“ in 2021 and was then submitted as one of my two competing pieces (the other being Stellar Caprice No. 1) in the advanced category.

      Lacking time I reduced my demands to musical form thus ending up with the simple ABA structure at hand, only edited slightly in the middle section of the piece.

      There’s no underlying program, interpretation is completely up to the performer. However this can be taken for a neo-romanticist Impromptu at face value, so take your musical freedom in the rhapsodic parts and don’t hesitate to aim for an appropriate grandeur in the tonal breakthroughs.

      Supported by the Stellar Composer Competition 2021.
