For me, the collaborative process with composers, resulting in a new work, is the greatest and most exciting thing that life can offer a musician. I am delighted and thankful that this production, together with the fantastic Ensemble PHACE, conductor Simeon Pironkoff and these composers, was possible and that it will be the first release on the PHACE label.
