Markus Reuter about his piano piece "His last decade":

"The form of my composition is inspired by Beethoven being commonly referred to as a "structuralist". The piece is a musical image depicting a "creative process", which is technically represented as the permutation of a musical idea. The permutation of pitches creates a mood that represents the universal feeling of creation for me.

The piece also reflects the question "What does one hear when one hears nothing?", which came up thinking of Beethoven's deafness. "His last decade" is an expression of the notion that musical composition can take place beyond acoustic perception, and is thus related to Beethoven's creations in the last years of his life."
