Georg Friedrich Haas in conversation with Götz Teutsch (17 min.)

In conversation with Götz Teutsch, formerly principal cellist of the Berliner Philharmoniker, Austrian composer Georg Friedrich Haas tells of his collaboration with Sir Simon Rattle and the Berliner Philharmoniker to premiere his work dark dreams. In addition, we learn how his childhood memories have influenced his tonal language, which is to some extent microtonal, and why it is so difficult in new music to compose a suitable ending to a piece.
