Poeme lunaire was composed in 2008 to a commission from the viola player Michel Rouilly. It is dedicated jointly to him, Bettina Sutter, and Hans J. Baer. The shimmering opening bars prepare one's ears for a vortex that is nourished by a constant intensification of motives, harmonies, metres, and actions, and finally climaxes in a whirl of noises. The ensuing cantabile sequences dissolve into a barren close that makes use of natural tones and micro- intervals, both in the viola and in the piano." (David Philip Hefti) // David Philip Hefti, prize-winner of the Witold Lutoslawski and George Enescu Competitions, was born in 1975 in St Gall, Switzerland, and grew up in St Gall, Zurich, and Washington, D.C.
