Prasqual in short statements

Prasqual ©Matthias Baus

composer      

"I regard composing as forming air and time, and the sound as a physical phenomenon: abstract and sensual, sacral and erotic. Musical theatre, microtonality, space and rituals in the music are the main fields of my interest."


conductor      

"Bringing scores to life is a fascinating experience and a possibility of shaping the music very directly through the gesture, with no need for words."


pianist      

"As a pianist, I like to create timeless musical structures. Composing a piano recital is constructing - with all love for details and never losing the formal feeling for the entire structure."
