Program Notes

"The caravan ("Karawane"), as a composed wilderness, aims to give a palpable form to dream and reality, what is audible and inaudible, separation and connection, distance and closeness. (...) However, the sound is never at a standstill; it is constantly pushed onward by an inner movement. It is like a caravan forging ahead, ever on the move." (Adriana Hölszky)
