Wassily Kandinsky once said that “music is the ultimate teacher”. Conceived in 1991 as a reaction to the war occurring in the world at that time, There explores the dichotomy of two conflicting spatial and mental dimensions: a “there-ness”, symbolised by the orchestra, opposed to the “here-ness” epitomised by the string quartet. Similar to Kandinsky’s picture Towards the Blue, the yearning for a more inspiring reality is articulated by the interaction of sonic gestures dislocated in space and in constant search for possible points of contact.

The world premiere of There took place at the Rosenthaler-Theater in Selb, Germany, on 23rd May 2019 and was performed by the Hofer Symphoniker conducted by Johannes Klumpp.
