The Concerto for Piano and Orchestra (2007) is a search for pathways in the sense of a new exploration of sound: It is the summation and continuation of a composed investigation and analysis of the piano’s sound, whose phenomena, resonances, overtone spectra and pedalizations. “I was mainly concerned,” says the composer, “with giving the piano a resonance throughout the whole work and with maintaining the plasticity of the piano sound. The piano sound always remains the center of gravitation, while the orchestra is the amplifier giving space to the piano.” (Marie Luise Maintz)
