"Wär´ich ein Ton." - Composition commissions issued to Johannes Schöllhorn and Carola Baukholt
Jean Paul 2013 e.V., Bayreuth, Germany
To mark the anniversary year of German novelist Jean Paul the “Jean Paul 2013 e.V.” association will, with the help of the Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation, be issuing two composition compositions for orchestral works to Johannes Schöllhorn and Carola Bauckholt. The work of Jean Paul is to form the basis of the compositions. His fantastical worlds are ideal for suitable translation and further development into musical notation and sonic tracks. In this way the works convey John Paul’s cross-genre topicality and also create interdisciplinary points of contact between audiences interested in literature, Jean Paul’s fan base and New Music.
World premiere of the work by Carola Bauckholt:
September 12th, 2013
World premiere of the work by Johannes Schöllhorn:
October 18th, 2013
