With this fascinating project I had the opportunity to compose for  the renowned actress Katja Riemann, her reciting from the poems of the great Edel Adnan. The project, set into realization by Rainer Haarmann of Edition Longplay resulted in the LP “Jahreszeiten – Die Stimme des Libanon”.

While Etel Adnan also did the outstanding cover art, her reaction to the project was overwhelming:

“There have been unforgettable moments; I am thankful and happy to share an evening full of great moments with the wonderful reading and interpretation of Katja Riemann and with great musician. The concert was just great, great music and a lot of “soul”, like real jazz needs. It was a magic event, I cannot forget it. I see it in the front of me!”
