"Mitte-Schnitte"
12 episodes and an epilogue

Premiere of 20.8. 2020, Kunsthaus "sans titre" Potsdam, as part of Intersonanzen 2020, organizer BVNM - Brandenburgischer Verein Neue Musik; Modern Art Ensemble Klaus Schöpp (flutes), Unolf Wänting (clarinets), Theodor Flindell (violin), Tomoko Akasaka (viola), Matias de Oliveira Pinto (violoncello), Yoriko Ikeya (piano); camera and editing - Henry Mex, sound - Dietrich Petzold

Abput Mitte-Schnitte for sextet
The composition was written between 2017 and 2020.The title is ambiguous and refers to twelve episodes that immediately merge into each other, separated only by short cuts. The individual fragments of the movement resemble short  film clips that transform in, sometimes abrupt, contrasts. Here,  the different groupings of the ensemble alternate with soloistic sections. The composition concludes in a calm mood, with the musicians  speaking and singing into their instruments the poem "Ehemals und jetzt"  by the German poet Friedrich Hölderlin (1770-1843).

„Mit dem Royal Stringquartet Warsaw waren spürsinnige Interpreten zu erleben, die jeder Note, jedem geräuschhaften Element ihre konzentrierte Aufmerksamkeit widmeten –Tüftler am Werk, die Schwieriges heraus zu modellieren vermochten.Das Dritte Streichquartettvon Andreas Staffel lebt vor allem vom klanglichen Spektrum der Instrumente. Es erzählt intensiv in atmosphärischer Dichte von der Auseinandersetzung des Komponisten mit der abstrakten Malerei Gerhard Richters.“
