40 piano miniatures by mathias rüegg
Chamber music | Jazz | New music | Concert | Adults
Free-spirited!, With a Pinch of Jazz, Swisslike and A bissarl weanarisch, These are a selection of the performance directions for matthias rüegg’s Solitude Diaries. “Come in, Mr CoVID-19!“ is the title of the first of these forty piano miniatures. It was composed on 16th March 2020, the start of the first lockdown in Vienna. From Monday to Friday, one every day. Flashes of classical, jazz and folk music are all in evidence. The Mannerschnitte wafer is set to music; Augustin is brought to life by the power of love; Lauren Bacall bestows a Smile of Gold; Happy Ostinati scurry and scamper until the advent of “the bitter end of a dreadful relationship”, performed by three pianists from three different generations.
