Die Nachtigall / The Nightingale for violin (Irina RUSU), piano and tape (mp3) featuring a nightingale's original singing. After our 1st rehearsal with my "songs without words" for violin and piano in February 2009, I thought: This it cannot be alone. I felt animated to write a piece for Irina Rusu which offers rhythmic energy (as SWW N°5) but more and various melodious treatment and a strong emotional string with some Romanian colour. And it worked out to be the favourite piece by the audience.... and by the soloist.
