The disciples in the first part and the Pharisees in the second are written for a group of three tenors (traditionally called ‘Turba’) who, according to the dramatical situation, speak, whisper or scream.

Missa ad te levavi (2010)
for a cappella vocal ensemble (SATB)
The "ad te levavi" mass is the compositional result of a research project, in which I investigated the implementation of the adiastematic neumes. It combines the Gregorian proper for the first Sunday of advent with those parts of the ordinary that I used in my vocal cycle "Polyptychon". The Gregorian template is used in the original form and in various compositional adaptations in such a way that the two styles merge.

Max E. Keller
1968 – und heute? (2010)
for tenor/countertenor and recorder
Texts: Max E. Keller
Three aspects of the 1968 movement in three sections: The USA War against Northern Vietnam caused worldwide protestation, which led in 1975 to the beaten withdrawal of the Americans. Today's united Vietnam is a thriving country and a rich source of mineral deposits. The Shah's visit to Berlin in June 1967 and the shooting of a protesting student by police triggered a further youth revolt in 1968. The Shah was soon forced to stand down and the Islamists picked up the sceptre in a dubious success. In its widest sense, the then ideal of a self-determined yet solidly life gave way to a new conformism and apathy and a bureaucratically regulated society. This setting does not make use of today's ready-made pop idiom, but explores a rather more independent, colourful and diversified musical implementation of this unconventional instrumentation. Voice and recorder often move on different levels by reacting to different textual dimensions. This sound world thus reflects the spontaneity, fantasy and abandon of 68 without the superficial duplication of the textual content.
