Mark Candasamy about his piano piece "Besessenheit":

„Looking back, I may be right to claim that it was my early study of the opus 2 sonatas that proved the most instructive during the early phases of my university education. It was at that same time my pursuit of composition became the most serious aspect of my life. So, when pondering possible angles for my contribution to this immense Beethovenhommage, it seemed natural to return to this formative experience, and formative time, with the very music of Beethoven I have known intimately for the longest amount of time! „Besessenheit“ attempts to be informed and inspired by Beethovens’s clear and youthful expressions of various musical elements in his early works, as well as my own life-long brooding over the man himself, his temperament, and what propelled him towards such an overwhelming mastery of the craft I love so much.“
