The piece is performed by Nava Hemyari, Voice and Maria Bunea, guitar. In the soundpost you can find out what inspires Oskar and Nava, their favorite directors and movies, how the piece was composed, how the pandemic affected their daily life and much more. This soundpost is also available as video – you can watch it now on YouTube.
In the third episode of our soundpost you can hear two pieces for clarinet. They are composed by Roberta Lazo Valenzuela and Oskar Gigele and performed by Ghazal Faghihi.
Here is what the composers say about their pieces:
“A matter of choice” is a piece for clarinet solo based on a phone conversation with my mom. The melodic and rhythmic material is drawn from a single phrase that briefly reflects on women, career and personal life.” – Roberta Lazo Valenzuela
„The Cat and the Cricket“ is a funny piece. Initially I wanted to just explore the clarinet’s technical capabilities. But then I got inspired by a comical moment I witnessed. An insect had flown into my apartment at night and my cat Noki got a little bit wild and tried to catch it, but failed and continued sleeping. The piece’s introductory bars portray the blissful laziness of a sleepy cat and then it shifts to a faster section which represents a fluttering cricket, jumping around the annoyed cat. The cat chases the cricket, but whether she is able to catch the agitator in the end or not is left to the listener’s imagination.” – Oskar Gigele
The second episode of our podcast is again dedicated to violoncello. Here we present “Futile”- a recently composed piece by Florin Gorgos and “Karak”, composed by Armin Sanayei in 2019. Both interpreted by our InMuAs Cellist – Namdar Majidi.
