Himmelsrichtungen (Cardinal Points)

The title Himmelsrichtungen, literally "directions of the sky", means in German "cardinal points". Usually they are four, but the composer added two (zenith and nadir), because they determine the third dimension: we are not more conceiving a bidimensional world, but a tridimensional one. This represents the overcoming, the generalization of the system (of any system).

The musical language integrates tonality (more traditional pieces) and post-tonality (more experimental). This album, which can be filed under the genre <b>contemporary classical</b>, offers an accessible avant-garde sound with a transparent "melocentric" approach.

The musical characters range from sober (1st) to nostalgic (4th), from abstract (2nd) to minimalistic (3rd), from doubtlessly happy and hyperkinetic (5th) to reservedly mysterious (6th).
