Program Notes

Caresse is an ode to music. Since his early childhood, Thomas Asanger, who was born in Austria in 1988, has always been closely connected to music: not just because the process of composing music is a very personal one, but from his early musical days, he connected to music because it touches many aspects from ones soul: music as a friend, a mediator, companion and comforter.

Music enables musicians to paint soundscapes that will emerge -- through the different sound ranges -- graceful, gentle and melodic appearances. It is definitely an art form to guide melodies in the direction of tautly and rousing phrases. But above all, it is the art of mesh merging separate elements, that will fill the hearts of musicians with joy.
