Friedrich Jaecker about his piano piece “110”:

“Das Schwanken zwischen klagendem Gesang und konstruktivem Zugriff, zwischen Ermattung und neuem Aufleben lassen den dritten Satz der Klaviersonate Opus 110 von Ludwig van Beethoven wie ein seelisches Protokoll des Komponisten erscheinen, ganz so, als teile er uns hier intimste Dinge mit. Gleichzeitig ist die musikalische Faktur von höchster formaler und satztechnischer Raffinesse. Metrische, rhythmische und agogische Wechsel sorgen auch in 110 für eine ständige Verwandlung ähnlicher Gestalten. Wechselnde harmonische Bezüge lassen scheinbar Gleiches in neuem Licht erscheinen, bis in den mikrotonalen Bereich hinein. Kein Takt ist wie der andere – selbst dann nicht, wenn, wie es am Schluss der Fall ist, die untergründige Mechanik der Satzstruktur offen zutage tritt.”


Friedrich Jaecker about his piano piece "110":

"The 3rd movement of Beethoven's piano sonata Op. 110 lets a wavering mournful songs between weariness and revivyl, that seem like a composer's spiritual protocol, as if the was sharing some of the most intimate things with us.

At the same time, the musical texture is of the highest formal and technical sophistication. Metric rhythmic and agogical changes also ensure a constant transformation of similar figures in Op. 110. Changing harmonious references seem to have the same effect in a new light, even into the mictrotonal area. No bar is like the other - not even if, as is the case in the end, the underlying mechanics of the structure of sentences becomes overt,"
