Premiere in Elbphilharmonie

The premiere of Köster’s “Memory Fragments III (im Eifer etwas übersehen)” was commissioned by the Lux Nova Duo, who played the piece to a sold out audience at their “Auf den Spuren Johann Sebastian Bachs” concert, in honor of Bach’s 333rd birthday. An especially noteworthy piece on the program was Charles Uzor’s “Sephardic Lilt”, inspired by the dances of oppressed Jewish peoples on the Iberian Peninsula.
