The programm «Spirituality and Paradise» shows spiritual connected works by contemporary composers and works from earlier times.

Szymanowskys Piesni muezina and Barbers Hermit Songs are named to be something like «classicals» of spiritual works.

Solo-Piano work «die vögel stehen in der luft und schreien» by Margarete Huber is reflecting newly spiritualistic aspects as existence and death.

Apparition is a state where you mind is between dream and reality. Crumb´s famous cycle brings up fabulously beautiful images and visions from far and beyond.

As well as Pauline Oliveros, who established the «Deep listening», a new focus about intensity in improvisation, a new understanding of time and listening.

Not at least the early spiritual works from female composers like Hildegard von Bingen as well as from the pionier of experimental voice Meredith Monk should have a place in this program.

Martyna Koseckas «Cogita!» connects intellectual, emotional and spiritual human activities and with its proportional notation bring us closer to the apogee of the concert – improvisation.
