This piece is dedicated to my friend Alexander Polzin and was composed for the clarinetist Freyja Gunnlaugsdóttir. gestern – heute – morgen are three melodic miniatures, resulting from the encounter with Alexander’s works which often inspire me to write melodies. Each of these melodies also uses sound inspirations from my Greek homeland.
