Such different Paths

String Septet (2 violins, 2 violas, 2 celli and double bass)
Duration: 15’

First Performance: Janine Jansen, Julia- Maria Kretz, Hartmut Rhode, Maxim Rysanov, Jens Peter Meinz, Torleif Thedeen, Stacey Watton. Spectrum Concerts, Philharmonie Kammermusiksaal Berlin

There is the underlying idea of music as building blocks (so the beginning starts with the two violins, then the next 'block' comes in with the violas, then cellos etc… all of which can work individually, but also together). My intention is that there is the sense of a journey (thus the occasional direction in the score like 'searching' or 'transition'). 

The septet was commissioned by Spectrum Series, Berlin on the occasion of the series’ 20th anniversary and is dedicated to Spectrum Series and Janine Jansen.
