"Beethovenamstück" by german composer Harald Muenz ist part of Vol. 2 of Susanne Kessel's global composition project
"250 piano pieces for Beethoven"
Susanne Kessel, piano
250 composers from all over the world are invited to write new piano pieces for Beethoven's 250th anniversary in the year 2020. All pieces refer to Beethoven's music and/or his life.
Susanne Kessel plays the world premieres of all the piano pieces in Beethoven's birthtown Bonn. And further performances also in other cities and countries.
All pieces are published within a high quality sheet music edition by EDITIONS MUSICA FERRUM / London.
You can find the sheet music of this piece in Vol. 2 of the project's edition.
Harald Muenz about his piano piece "Beethovenamstück":
"The pianist enters the stage with a large stack of bound piano sheet music by common publishers under her/his arms. For the audience, just the name printed on them, in bold, BEETHOVEN should be recognisable.
Palpably, slamming the stack on the grand piano, visibly blowing away the dust, stinging somewhere in with a needle, audibly tearing out the selected page, noticeably putting it upside down onto the grand piano's music stand, she plays the emerging, perceptingly new, musical text.
The detached page should be played in its entirety. The tempo is free, therefore the duration of a performance is variable."
