Programme note

Canciones Lunáticas was commissioned by Internationales Musikfestival Heidelberger Frühling in 2009.

It was written for Jake Arditti (Countertenor) and the Arditti Quartet (Irvine Arditti & Ashot Sarkissjan, Violines, Ralf Ehlers, Viola, Lucas Fels, Violoncello).

Songs II and III were premiered on 17th April 2009 at the Festival. The first song was written later for the 80th birthday of our dear friend Leo Hepner. The third song is dedicated to Sonia Simmenauer who commissioned the work and made this project possible.
