Solo voice is very special challenge for both the composer and the performer. It offers the composer the opportunity to register his most personal sensations in a kind of seismographic diary and to express his innermost thoughts while for the vocalist, an artistic tightrope walk is in store without a safety line nor a net below. Left solely to oneself, the singing performer is confronted with his or her own being thereby allowing the listener admittance to the inner-workings of the world of music. This is more than
taken into account in this selection of contemporary works which the composers created working closely together with the singer and performer Maria Kowollik.
