about this recording:

In a duo, that is to say, to be underway as a twosome, can mean: shared experiences both positive and negative, overcoming difficult stretches of way, mutual assistance, consideration, and willingness to compromise, shared tightrope acts, occasional stepping out of line: going it alone, quarrels, dealing with conflicts and reconciliation, consideration of things and evaluation of situations from often very different points of view, agreement and harmony in spite of contrary opinions...

Horst Lohse was born in Kulmbach, Upper Franconia, in 1943. After high school graduation, he initially studied at the Bayreuth Teachers College, subsequently violin and composition (with Helmut Eder) at the Mozarteum in Salzburg, and theory and composition (with Bertold Hummel) at the Würzburg College of Music. For his oeuvre, whose focus is chamber and orchestral music, he has received a number of national and international prizes and awards, including the Promotional Prize of the City of Stuttgart (1974), the Orchestral Composition Prize endowed by the Federal Association of German Industry and the International Society for Contemporary Music (1982), a prize at the European Composers Competition of the Aarhus Symphony Orchestra (1982), and a prize at the International Carl Maria von Weber Competition for Ballet of the Dresden Music Festival (1984). Moreover, he received the “Berganza Prize” of the Bamberg Art Society (1999), the Franconian “Otto Grau Cultural Prize” (2002), and the “Cultural Prize of the Upper Franconia Foundation 2006.” Many of his nearly eighty works have been performed at international festivals and other venues in Europe, North and South America, Turkey, and Russia, recorded for radio broadcasts, and released on ten CDs.
