Elbphilharmonie concert

It brings me great joy to finally share this work. Written in a haze of only 11 days, this work represents a stream-of-concious musical aesthetic loosely based upon the influence of J.S. Bach.  Unedited, emotional, sometimes banal, and extremely nostalgic, I intend for this work to directly represent my experiences in the ICU after the birth of my first daughter.

Author: Tristan Koester

Tristan Xavier Köster (b. 1993) is a Los Angeles born composer currently living in Hamburg, Germany. Working with ensembles and musicians in predominantly acoustic settings, Tristan is inspired by the abstract emotive capabilities of music and its ability to be radically interpreted by performers and listeners alike. Searching to exhibit a new “colloquial” sound in the contemporary classical medium, Tristan thinks of himself as a musician constantly improvising and searching for an unheard, yet intuitive, way to approach an instrument or ensemble.
