Album Notes
Baie Mahault

Many of my compositions were inspired by the underwater world. Baie Mahault was among them, too. Baie Mahault is a small village located on La Désirade, an island of about 10 by 2 km, 30 km north east of Guadeloupe. Politically, Guadeloupe and the surrounding islands belong to France, geographically to the Lesser Antilles.
Baie Mahault is more of a symphonic piece for violin, cello, piano and small orchestra (Fl., Ob. Cl., Ba.; Horn, Tr., Pos., strings, percussion) than a concerto for piano trio and orchestra. It consists of four movements:
I. Baie Mahault, Andante. We lived there with our friends.
II. Le Souffleur, Allegro. Le Souffleur was the place where we loaded our equipments for scuba diving on a small boat. From there we sailed to our diving grounds far outside the reef.
III. Monde sous-marine, Lento. Imagine you float over an underwater landscape littered with different bush and leave corals and sponges. Bright colored fish pass by, alone or in schools: a fantastic world. But down there it is never completely silent, one always hears some crackling or clicking. The music does perhaps expose some of this feelings.
IV. Vie sous-marine, Allegro. It goes on vividly.
Baie Mahault was recorded 2006 with the Plzen Philharmonic Orchestra (Radio Sinfonie Orchester Pilsen) and the soloists Julius Aria Sahbai (violin), Doris Maria Sigrist (violoncello) and Susy Lüthy (piano). Conducter: Christoph Rehli. Aufnahmeleiter: Antonín Bulka. Ton engineer: Michal Žák.

Symphony no. 4
My father was a cabinet maker and carpenter with his own workshop. When we had to quit our apartment in Stein am Rhein, he simply built his own house and workshop. Perhaps one or two times during the year, he packed up his oil-colors, his canvases and other utilities and disappeared for several days. He then came back with paintings made in the environment of Stein am Rhein. The symphony no. 4 has six movements all related to father's oil paintings:
I. Mühliweiher (a small pond), Andante. This painting was used for the art work of the album. When we were children we often played near the border of the pond. In the spring we watched lots of tadpoles and in summer may be a grass snake. We didn't touch the water because we were afraid of the crayfish living there.
II. Bach Im Wald (brook in the forest), Andante. I didn't find this place yet but I like the painting.
III. Scherzo, Allegro vivace - Andante - Allegro vivace. The painting shows the house and the workshop he built. I don't explain anything about the music one has to listen to it!
IV. Im Wald (in the forest), Adagio. Looking at the picture (not given here) I imagined a man walking engulfed in deep thoughts along the path, but suddenly something else arises and he keeps thinking in this new tracks then he falls back to his earlier thoughts.
V. Am Rhein, Allegro moderato. I ordered this painting from my father (1972). It shows the Rhein, the monastery Sankt Georgen and a part of Stein am Rhein. There is a stairway leading from the monastery directly into the Rhein. The stairs end in the Rhein they can only be attained by swimming. Already as a boy (I grew up in Stein am Rhein) I estimated this wind protected stairs for letting me warm up by the sun. In addition one has a wonderful sight onto the Rhein and everything what happens there.
VI. Hegauvulkane, Allegro. Volcanos have fascinated me for a long time. Two times I dealt musically with volcanoes: Piano trio no. 1, last movement, Caldeiras, Grave and in the piano trio no. 2, last movement, La Soufrière (volcano on Guadeloupe), Lento. Today the Hegau volcanoes are supposed to be extinguished, but not in my music.
My music doesn't need any description. But some people like to know what went on behind the scenes. Since there is no lyric I gave some hints and added some explanations about the paintings.
The Symphony no. 4 was recorded 2006 with the Plzen Philharmonic Orchestra (Radio Sinfonie Orchester Pilsen). Conductor: Christoph Rehli. Aufnahmeleiter: Antonín Bulka. Ton engineer: Michal Žák.
